When I think of Stewardship, I think of Love, Caring and Sharing, Random acts of kindness, and Paying it Forward. Our giving doesn't have to be much, but when we do give, either monetarily or of ourselves, we really feel good, don't we? And with our giving I truly believe we are paid back with many Blessings. Can you imagine, if one person gave to 2 people, and those 2 people each gave to 2 people and so on, how much of an impact could be made? Hence, paying it forward.
Look at Jesus, he was able to feed thousands with just a few loaves of bread. There are so many things happening in this world: people in need, churches struggling to stay afloat, injustice, atrocities and the list goes on. How many of us have looked around and asked God why don't you do something? But what we don't realize, he did--he created us. Many of us get caught up in life and it's easy to stand still and say it's alright somebody else will do something. The thing is it's not enough to do nothing. In a song by Matthew West he sings: "We are the salt of the earth, we are the city on the hill, But we are never going to change the world, By standing still".
So I will leave you with this thought, if not us then who? If not now then when? It's time for us to do something and find the Joy in Giving.
