Stewardship (Ezra 1:1-11)

Good morning all,

The word of the day is “stewardship.” How ‘bout this one for a Xtian word if I have ever heard one. How true is it that we should be good stewards of the resources that God gives. Even the king understood that God’s peeps needed to go up to Judah and build the house of the Lord. Every person was expected to pitch in and serve according to his or her gifts.

“Then the family heads of Judah and Benjamin, and the priests and Levites—everyone whose heart God had moved—prepared to go up and build the house of the LORD in Jerusalem.”
~Ez. 1:5

My question is: are you using your gifts for God’s glory? There is a ton of stuff that needs to be done in this crazy world and each believer has been given a gift or multiple gifts that should be utilized. My prayer is that each of us digs down deep at the end of this year to evaluate how we use those gifts. If you do not know what you do well then ask someone who knows you pretty well. That person will give you insight into how you can best use your gifts for advancing God’s kingdom here on earth. I am excited to hear of how God has used you and will use you going into this next year.

Praying for you,
