Stewardship Thought
March 18, 2018 - "I will be their God and they shall be my people."  -- JEREMIAH 31:33.

What does it mean to be God's people? It means we recognize that everything we have and everything we are belongs to God. We aren't "owners" of anything, we are merely "stewards" of the gifts God has given us. It means we are willing to use our gifts and our lives to care for our neighbors and the world, just as God cares for us.
