If you attend church you have heard “Be a good steward” preached a few times. What exactly does this mean to be a good steward and why is it important? Steward has several meanings two of which I think are fundamental in developing our understanding of the principle of good stewardship. A steward is a fiscal agent, and one who manages and direct affairs. Fiscal means relating to financial matters. Now, being a good steward means to manage and or direct financial matters in a responsible, beneficial, fashion. In layman terms, take care of what we have, maximize what we have and eliminate waste.
When we are responsible for what we have and handle it responsibly, we are trusted with more. It really is that simple.
