As you prayerfully reflect on your stewardship commitment to your church for 2009 please take a moment and give thanks to God for his many blessings.
Stewardship is a sacred opportunity that we have to return to the Lord a fraction of the abundance that He has given us. Holy Scripture tells us we are to tithe (ten percent of our annual income) to the Lord, and His ministries.
Stewardship entails much more than dollars and cents. It also includes offering to the Lord your talents and time.
Bring all the tithes (the whole tenth of your income) into the storehouse, that there may be food in My house, and prove Me now by it, says the Lord of hosts, if I will not open the windows of heaven for you and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it (Malachi 3:10 AMP).
