Pass the Stewardship Test!
I read with casual interest the parable that Jesus gave about the three stewards until the day I realized that I was also a steward and would have to give an account to God of the way I managed His resources.
Each steward was given a different amount of money, along with sufficient time to make wise investments. Two of them doubled what they were given and were praised, while the remaining steward returned only what he had been given and was cursed. (See Matthew 25:14–30.) This account prompted me to make it my goal to live on as little as I could and to invest as much as I could in the work of the Lord.
