What inspires you to be everyday stewards?

Jesus Christ is the center of our family. Everything we do and the servitude we perform revolves around Jesus. We have an intimate personal relationship with Him and that creates a path for us to follow in His footsteps. Jesus is our inspiration, and our guide to stewardship. We are quite secure in the fact, that when we serve, we serve the Lord as well as His people, where ever that may take us. 

How does commitment impact your desire to be an everyday steward?

Psalm 37:5-6 says what is in our hearts.  "Commit everything you do to the Lord. Trust him, and he will help you. He will make your innocence radiate like the dawn, and the justice of your cause will shine like the noonday sun."  We pray that we can radiate service, love for God's people, and share our beliefs through our stewardship. We serve from the heart. Our service is not out of a sense of obligation rather than an expression of gratitude, talent, and love for all the blessings we have in our lives. 

We especially share our love of God, and His Word, with our grandchildren Avery and Zaria. They are learning early in their youth that service to the Lord and His people is vital and important to a full life.  Each morning before school they are asked to take their spiritual vitamin and they repeat, Jesus loves me. That is the lesson that we want to teach our youth, and the entire parish. 

Our commitment to studying the Word has made us more aware of the purpose and the value we have to share with others.  We celebrate our faith with other believers inside the church and challenge ourselves to actively live our faith outside the church. We walk in the fear of the Lord, obeying His Word and loving and serving others.
