Biblical stewardship is a very important concept to me, as it is one that I have tried to live by, both in my personal life and in the workplace for many years now. According to the article, “What is Biblical Stewardship” by R.C. Sproul, he points out that God gave the command for Adam and Eve to have dominion over the earth, which means to “take care” of what was entrusted to them. They had to make to decisions, not recklessly, but carefully based on wisdom.
God has given us resources to replenish the earth; take care of our homes, our business, etc. and if we steward them wisely, we will be in obedience to His command of “being fruitful and multiplying”. However, as we are now seeing the evidence of not being wise and stewarding well with what the Lord has given us, we are seeing lack, famine, pestilence, and the like, and will unfortunately see more. These are all things that God never intended for His people, and yet we constantly blame Him for.
The very basis of being a good steward is being ethical. We read about this in Chapter 1, as it states that having good ethics should be important to every company and person because it “creates an invaluable reputation” (Block et al., 2019). God put stewardship in place for our care; not His. As a matter of fact, most things, He does for us, it’s not because He needs us to do them for Him.
What is Biblical Stewardship
After reading this article there were some topics that I do not fully agree with, but overall, the article gave me a
reminder on how to approach things and a different perspective on how I view certain things in a good way. The
first thing is to ensure that I am being my best on a daily basis. To always try and do the right thing and be obedient
to God. Leading by biblical principles should always be your first course of action. What’s important is having
standards and remembering God is watching and at the end of the day you will have to give an account for how you
lived your life.
The article mentioned “economics and the ethical and emotional issues that surround it are frequent topics of
discussion and front-page news” (Sproul, 2019). Everything now is front-page news, and it all comes back to one
question are we living the way God intended us to live. When we talk about budgeting and Capital Management,
for me all of it provides areas of stewardship.
I want to connect everything I do in this life with God. Being made in the image of God is something that we
should never forget as we move through life.
Colossians 3: 23-24 says “And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord and not unto men; Knowing that
of the Lord ye shall receive the reward of the inheritance: for ye serve the Lord Christ” (KJV). Reminding us that we
will be rewarded in the next life.
According to (Oelschlager, 2018, p.7) “our emphasis seems to be more about making the world out there a better
place, rather than acknowledging that even people who choose to be part of the church are also hoping for
something better in life.” This statement is just a reminder that having a better life is what must people want as it
may be easy for some it’s a lot harder for others.
