Stewardship is a sometimes misunderstood concept. It tends to elicit thoughts of tithing, obligations, and offertory collections. While these actions are part of it, stewardship is much more than this--it is a way of looking at life. When we have a profound sense of gratitude resulting from seeing everything--everything--as a gift from God to us, we are motivated to want to return some of this abundance to Him. This giving back to God is stewardship.
The Office of Stewardship and Development has put together an action plan for stewardship that starts with this belief, offers four easy steps to follow, and provides several simple tools you can use to be successful.
