AUTHOR: NAD Stewardship

“Yours, Lord, is the greatness and the power

and the glory and the majesty and the splendor,

for everything in heaven and earth is yours.

Yours, Lord, is the kingdom;

you are exalted as head over all.

Wealth and honor come from you;

you are the ruler of all things.

In your hands are strength and power

to exalt and give strength to all.

Now, our God, we give you thanks,

and praise your glorious name.”

1 Chronicles 29:11-13 NIV


What subject is addressed most often in the Bible? If your answer is “Salvation,” you are correct. Do you know the second most addressed subject in Scripture? It is “financial matters,” described in various ways, such as: wealth, possessions, stewardship, money or money management principles, or giving.

The reason this is addressed so strongly is that it is one of the keys to our relationship with God. Wealth and money have such a powerful hold on us we must get that right or everything else will be distorted. The Christian life is a call to God-centered living. Rather than focus on the provisions we focus on the Provider the one through whom all wealth and honor comes.

Appeal: In the organization of our church our Union provides a valuable place in the regional work needed. Our offering will provide for the special needs in our territory.
