ON STEWARDSHIP
“Every man according as he purposeth in his heart, so let him give; not grudgingly, or of necessity: for God loveth a cheerful giver” (II Cor. 9:7). Read the passage. After a time for quiet reflection, share your thoughts with God on these questions.  (1) Most of us are reluctant to give because: e.g. “I will not have enough.” These fears (or reasons for being reluctant) are real: share with God the realities of these fears in your life. (2) Most of us experience compulsion to give: e.g. “I feel guilty when I see poverty.”  These compulsions are real: Share with God the realities of these compulsions in your life. (3) If the answer to my fears or reluctance to give is God’s ever-loving care providing everything I need, what do I really believe about God’s ever-loving care? How do I live this out in my life? (4) If freedom from giving under compulsion comes from knowing God’s grace and the fact that God loves me no matter whether I give or not, what do I believe about God’s love and forgiveness for me? How do I live this out in my life?  (5) How might my life be different if I really could make up my own mind without reluctance or compulsion? (6) How would my giving be different if I could make up my own mind without reluctance or compulsion? (7) What am I going to do about my giving?
