In the November 2019 issue of StewardCAST, LCMS Stewardship Ministry discusses the very real struggle that exists between stewardship and struggle. This struggle is rooted in the fact that an individual is at the same time saint and sinner.
Created by God and saved through the blood of Jesus, the steward embraces the task of managing all of life and life’s resources to God’s glory and to the neighbor’s benefit.
Marred by sin, the steward is tempted daily to take God’s good gifts and claim them as being owned by him/her. For this reason, steward leaders should recognize that the formation of stewards is a matter of pastoral care.
