BIBLE STUDY: Financial Stewardship

God desires that we be good stewards of all the blessings He has bestowed upon us. This includes, but is not exclusive to, our time, efforts and talents. We are also called to be good stewards of our material and monetary blessings. This particular section will focus on financial giving but it is important to remember that this is only one aspect of being good financial stewards. We are also called to manage our debt (Rom 13:8), to watch out for the temptations of wealth (1Tim 6:9) and instructed on how to guard our hearts and maintain proper perspective if we are rich (1 Tim 6:17-17). As a reminder, many of these passages are not exclusive to financial sacrifice.
