Stewardship Thought
September 16, 2018 - "Whoever wishes to come after me musr deny himself, take up his cross, and follow me."  -- Mark 8:34.

When we truly believe that all we have is a gift from God, then we must be willing to give up some things so that we can share our blessings as God intended. Living a stewardship lifestyle means not only being responsible for our own life, but the lives of others as well.
