What is Christian stewardship?

Previous Question | FAQs | Next Question

The Christian understanding of Stewardship is derived from our understanding of the nature of the generosity of God.

God the Creator
Because God is the Creator and has given men and women a special place in his purposes on earth and dominion over all other living creatures, men and women are called:

  • To worship God and to give thanks for his goodness
  • To use the natural world and other living creatures in the service of God and all people and not for self-interest and exploitation

At the Eucharistic Service we are reminded that, “All things come from you, O Lord, and of your own do we give you.” All that we have comes from God. God calls us to
be good stewards of all we have been given. God is concerned not simply with what we give but how we approach all we have. According to Genesis 1 and 2, our stewardship extends to caring for the whole world.
