How to be a Mature Christian
Colossians 1:24-29; Ephesians 4:7-16 (NRSV)

Being a Christian isn’t just about being baptized, joining a church, or participating in a service project. We are expected to grow through our experiences and become strong mature followers of Christ.

Created for Stewardship
Matthew 6:19-21, 24; 2 Cor 9:6-15 (NIV)

The most important part of stewardship is not about money, it is about priorities and how we live our lives.

The Sin of Selfishness and Greed

Our society wants us to believe that happiness and contentment are within our reach if we just acquire a few more things. Advertisements are geared to make us feel discontent so that we will buy more things to make us happy. Greed will not allow contentment, because it always urges us to acquire more.

Generous Reflection

As stewards, we are to offer our tithes to God through the church to acknowledge divine ownership over all that we are and have. We believe with the Psalmist that “The earth is the Lord’s and everything in it, the world, and all who live in it” (Psalm 24:1). Through our tithes and offerings we are simply returning to God a portion of what he has so generously given us. In the words of King David, “Everything comes from you, and we have given you only what comes from your hand” (1 Chronicles 29:14b).
