We have a stewardship responsibility to give to the work of the church. Doing so may require us to bring our habits of spending more fully under the Lordship of Christ.
At the same time, we need to realize that we are not doing God a favor by giving on Sunday mornings. Instead, all of the wealth in our possession is God’s--wealth he has entrusted to us, both for our enjoyment and for us to use in his service. That means we need to be good stewards of all of our wealth by following time-tested principles of budgeting and wealth management.
