Leadership Lesson

Ownership vs Stewardship – Who owns your company? Make a quick mental list of what you own and what God owns.

According to Psalm 24:1 (ESV) The earth is the LORD’s and the fullness thereof, the world and those who dwell therein. Since God owns it all, what is our role?

A steward is someone who takes care of what belongs to the owner. The role of a steward is described in 1 Corinthians 4:2 (ESV) Moreover, it is required of stewards that they be found trustworthy.

We are stewards of: the talents and abilities God has given each of us; the resources of time, treasure and the people He entrusts to us; and the opportunities He gives us. For an overseer, as God’s steward, must be above reproach. He must not be arrogant or quick-tempered or a drunkard or violent or greedy for gain, but hospitable, a lover of good, self-controlled, upright, holy, and disciplined. Titus 1:7-8 (ESV)

Have you gone beyond recognizing God owns it all on Sunday mornings to practicing we’re God’s stewards during the week? What difference might this make in your business?

Bit of Wisdom

And no creature is hidden from his sight, but all are naked and exposed to the eyes of him to whom we must give account. Hebrews 4:13 (ESV)
