Stewardship by the Book
In today’s Gospel, Jesus prays, AI have given You glory on earth by finishing the work You gave Me to do. Good stewards follow His example by using their time and talents for the glory of God.
Never ask as child, “What are you going to be when you grow up?” Ask, “How do you want to serve others when you grow up?”
“I am praying for them…” JOHN 17: 9
Prayer is the foundation of our Faith and the foundation of Stewardship. Pray in good times and in bad. Prayer is always the first best option in any situation, not just the last resort. Pray for friends and family and for those that don’t treat you very well. Pray to give praise, to thank and to ask God for help. Pray to see what God wants you to do with the gifts He has given you.
As Jesus appointed apostles, he also appoints parents to represent Him in the family; “make disciples of your children, baptizing and teaching them all I have taught you. Don’t worry, I am with you always.”
