What Is Stewardship?
Stewardship, in its simplest terms, is the act of putting God’s priorities before our own.  Good stewards give the first portion of their gifts of time, talent and treasure to the Lord’s work in gratitude for his many blessings.  This practice of giving our “first fruits” incorporates the aspect of sacrificial giving.
Stewards do four things…
Receive God’s gifts gratefully
Nurture God’s gifts responsibly
Share God’s gifts justly and charitably
Return those gifts to God abundantly
Becoming a Steward of Christ
Jesus not only calls people to him, but also forms them and sends them out in his service.  Becoming a disciple of Christ leads naturally to the practice of Stewardship.  These linked realities, discipleship and stewardship, make up the fabric of a Catholic life in which each day is lived in an intimate, personal relationship with the Lord.
