Tomorrow is Stewardship Sunday and this old accounting professor gets to preach. My essential theme is that in accounting lingo we are debtors — debtors to God. Or, in more familiar language, all that we have comes from Thee.
I plan to expand on the all. Stewardship is often narrowed to the size of our pledge for next year. I want to suggest that we need to spend some time thinking about whether we are being good stewards of all that has been entrusted to us. I end by recommending that we think not so much about how much we are giving but how much we are keeping. And whether we are being good stewards of the portion that we keep.
