The Heart of Stewardship

A man tells of a time that he was given true meaning of stewardship without ever realizing it at the time.

His two year old son had his bath and was given a snack. The boy crawled up on the couch and showed
him his snack… an absolute perfect pear. He said to his father, “ Would you like the first bite of my pear?”

It was very nice of him to offer, but more importantly, he had hit on the heart of stewardship. Do we off the
first “Bite” of our most precious fruit to God for all he has given to us? Or, do we offer the second, third, or
sometimes the core back to God?

It is important to ask ourselves these questions and to remember that stewardship is a new way of life to
us all.
