Having a Stewardship Mindset

Ever heard of the Prosperity Gospel? What about the Poverty Gospel?

The Prosperity Gospel says, “if you do this, you’ll get that in return.” It emphasizes worldly wealth instead of the true riches of Christ.

The Poverty Gospel swings in the opposite direction, teaching that material possessions are evil, rich people are ungodly and that self-denial is a means to earn righteousness in God’s eyes.

But we know neither of these are true. A Stewardship theology says God is the owner and provider of all things. We’re to be faithful with what  He provides, whether a lot or a little.

Remember Paul’s words in First Timothy “For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evils.”
