We responsibly manage the resources entrusted to us
The Bible asks, “What do you have that you did not receive?” (1 Corinthians 4:7). This is the starting point. The most that anyone can do is to build on something they were given to start with. Gifts from other people or God are best understood as trusts. We can be good stewards of our finances, as we budget wisely, give generously and account for funds. We can also be good stewards of the earth, reducing our carbon footprint and caring for creation. And we can offer up our time and talents, turning our passions into a way of giving back to others.
