THE PERSPECTIVE OF STEWARDSHIP


Which perspective is truer, more ethically sound, more aligned to reality? That it -- our possessions, our wealth, even our bodies and minds -- all belongs to us and we can do whatever we want? Or that we are temporary beneficiaries, and we find meaning in using what God has entrusted to us to the highest purposes? Which perspective fosters better decisions and deepens a spiritually grounded sense of community and responsibility? The wisdom revealed in Scripture and tradition for more than three thousand years is that those who practice from the perspective of a steward find greater happiness.
