Stewardship as a daily practice

stewardship_iconReflection from a parishioner… 

I recently read my morning Scriptures and reflected on an article discussing aspects of worship. In the Orthodox faith, we attend the Divine Liturgy on a weekly basis as a community and are expected to worship God privately each and every day of our lives. This includes our daily prayers, thanksgiving, almsgiving, gratitude – many ways we can praise and thank God for all that He has provided. 

This then led to a reflection on my life as a Steward – this isn’t a commitment that is completed weekly, or when a collection tray is passed or once a year at a festival we volunteer for. This is a commitment that must be exercised daily as well. When we thank God for all that He provides us, His only expectation is that we be good and faithful Stewards with what He has entrusted to us. Each function of our daily life should focus on our Time, Talents and Treasures and how we are using them.
