Good stewardship practices
result in great generosity.
At Morning Star, stewardship is not simply a method for us to raise money. It is a way of life that recognizes that everything we have is God’s and we are simply managing those resources here on earth.
The Bible is filled with examples of grateful responses to God's generous gifts. The Bible also teaches about our personal responsibility to share with others and warns against selfishness and misuse of God's economic resources.
Today, we United Methodists join others to help all of God's children whenever and wherever we can. Just as Jesus multiplied the loaves and fishes when the crowd grew hungry, we are the heart, spirit and hands of God's outreaching love. Life grows here through the joy of generosity.
