A little boy was fidgeting in church one Sunday morning during the pastor’s sermon. Finally, he leaned over to his mother and asked, “Mom, if we give the money now, do you think he’ll let us go?” If this boy expresses our idea of stewardship, we are missing the true meaning, purpose, and joy that are associated with giving. Our giving should express our thankfulness for who God is and what God does for us. Through our giving, we worship and honor our heavenly Father. We give not because God needs our gifts, but because we have a need to give. God in His sovereignty chooses to bless us as we give (Acts 20:35). For more information on stewardship, please contact Max Buban.

Welcome to my running online dialog on matters of our life together in faith community at Holy Trinity Lutheran Church—where the grace of Christ Jesus our Lord engages each of us and, in turn, sends us out to engage others with that grace as well. I look forward to learning and growing together.
