Faithful Stewardship

A.W. Tozerby A.W. Tozer

Upon the first day of the week let every one of you lay by him in store, as God has prospered him. 1 Corinthians 16:2

God has been pleased to deal with us in a most remarkable way concerning our Christian stewardship and responsibility of honoring Him with the things He has entrusted to us. The Bible teaching is plain: you have the right to keep what you have all to yourself, but it will then rust and decay and ultimately ruin you. This may hurt some of you, but I am obliged to tell you that God does not need anything you have. He does not need a dime of your money. What you need to understand is that it is your own spiritual welfare at stake in such matters as this. There is a beautiful and enriching principle involved in our offering to God what we are and what we have, but none of us are giving because there is a depression in heaven. A long time ago God said: “If I had need of anything, would I tell you?” Brethren, if the living God had need of anything, He would no longer be God!

Remain Faithful!

1 Corinthians 4:2 Moreover it is required in stewards, that a man be found faithful.

In the early 1800’s a preacher gave a message to call men to join him on the mission field in Africa. In the audience were only a few women along with a boy. The pastor knew that few women were expected to volunteer to face harsh African jungle conditions. However, he gave the message; and no one responded. What he didn’t realize was that he had touched the heart of a little boy whose name was David Livingstone. This boy would grow up to spend the rest of his life ministering to Africa’s unreached tribes.
