Embracing Total Stewardship is a way of life for the genuine Christian disciple and is an essential biblically-based component of one’s spiritual life. It is not about what God, the Church, or others need from us. It is about the conscious, measured return (tithe) we need to make to God of the gifts He has first given to us. Spiritually, stewardship cultivates an ‘attitude of gratitude.’ Jesus’ love for us was sacrificial, selfless, and unconditional; it was not comfortable or convenient or haphazard. In imitation of Jesus, our stewardship is deliberate and without conditions.
