1 Kings 17:8 -16

Psalm 24

Matthew 25: 14 -30

 

Key idea is: I believe that everything I am or own belongs to God.

Key Verse: “The earth is the Lord’s and everything in it, the world,

and all who live in it.” Psalm 24:1 (Psalm 50:10; Haggai 2:8)

Part of the mission of God.

  1. We are servants of all God has entrusted to us.

“Again, it will be like a man going on a journey, who called his

servants and entrusted his wealth to them.” Matthew 25:14

  • Of God’s Creation (Genesis 1:28)
  • Of Our Children (1 Samuel 1:27‐28a)
  • Of Our Money (Luke 16:13; Malachi 3:10)
  • Of Our Homes (Romans 12:13; 1 Peter 4:9)
  • Of Our Bodies (1 Cor. 6:19‐20)
  • Over All We Do (1 Cor. 10:23,31)

 

 

 

  1. Servants are accountable to the Owner.

“After a long time the master of those servants returned and settled accounts with them.” Matthew 25:19

“So then, each of us will give an account of ourselves to God.”

Romans 14:12

 

  1. Good servanthood brings blessings & rewards.

“His master replied, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant ! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your master’s happiness!’”

Matthew 25:21,23; Colossians 3:23‐24

CONCLUSION

The practice of stewardship comes down to 2 things:

1) Trust – The Widow’s Meal (1 Kings 17:8‐16)

2) Surrender – The Widow’s Mite (Mark 12:41‐44)
