Stewardship

In common language, “stewardship” simply means taking good care of one’s belongings. But at Good Shepherd, when we talk about stewardship, we mean something more than that.  As Christians, we believe that humans don’t really own anything, per se. God has created all things; everything we “own” is really “on loan” from God. From this perspective, then, stewardship means taking care of God’s gifts. And everything that God has given us — special skills, a nice smile, a good income — is meant not only for us, but for others as well. As strange as it seems, being a good steward of these gifts involves giving them away. As we learn from Jesus’ life, self-giving is the road to true happiness.  This year, how will you use your gifts at Good Shepherd?

We encourage all members of the Good Shepherd community to make a stewardship commitment.
