But since you excel in everything—in faith, in speech, in knowledge, in complete earnestness and in the love we have kindled in you —see that you also excel in this grace of giving. 2 Corinthians 8:7

“Stewardship is bigger than just our individual organizations. Yes, that is our first priority as a professional. After that I believe God is using each one of us to champion the “cause” of teaching stewardship and development to the church and the world.

Our cause is about changing the world. As each person becomes a giver, more generous, and a steward, the world changes. As each person learns that to God it is more blessed to give than to receive, the world changes. As each steward grows in the grace of giving, the world changes.

May you be encouraged today that you do more than raise money, you embody the role of stewardship in the world and today YOU changed the world through your ministry of stewardship and development.”

John R. Frank in “Where is Stewardship in our World?” in 60 Great Stewardship & Development Ideas (PDF) 42-43.

I was reading a PDF written by my friend, John R. Frank, and needed this shot in the arm today.

Why should every pastor, ministry administrator, CEO, or staff member encourage faithful and generous stewardship of God’s resources, especially in a season where most people are thinking about spending?

It changes the world. It does. Our living, giving, serving, and loving impact our context and those around us.

So, from what you have, give generously in this season of Thanksgiving and on Giving Tuesday. I pray you include GTP on your list. John did. Thanks mate, for the gift and for this PDF with 60 great ideas.

Email me if you want to read the PDF. I’ll connect you with the author. And, please, go change the world everyone by encouraging generous stewardship.
