What is Godly stewardship for all that we possess?
All we have is from God’s Hand and by it we are blessed.
When we love the Lord with all our heart, and mind and soul,
From that vital love for Him, our stewardship will flow.
We can’t ‘out give’ our Gracious Lord; He will fill our cup,
If we feel we’re failing, He will always bear us up.
When we put Him first in life, and seek to sow His seed,
His Face will shine on us as He answers every need.
It’s more than just our ‘treasure’, but time and talent, too,
When God has first place in our time, all will follow through.
If we love the Lord with all our heart, and mind and soul,
Every part of stewardship to Him will be the whole.
As we freely share our treasure with an open hand,
We offer Him our love and He helps us understand…
That as we give, we shall receive; more than we can know,
God’s favor will be over us and our faith will grow.
Praise the Lord and sing His Glory; He is Christ the King,
Lift His Holy Name on high, as offerings we bring,
What a wonder that He loves us, even to the Cross,
Help us, Lord, to give our all to share YOU with the lost.
‘Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure,
pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap.
For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.’
