In the February 2017 issue of StewardCAST, LCMS Stewardship Ministry discusses the need for local congregations to turn their focus from the HOW and WHAT of stewardship to the WHY of stewardship.

Starting with the WHY of stewardship as it is delivered from the Word of God will allow for far better root-setting of stewardship among those who have been called to be the body of Christ in that place.

The Gospel of Jesus Christ serves as the basis for the WHY of stewardship. Stewardship flows from God who has made His children to serve and make a difference.

Through faithful giving and service, the Gospel is carried forth and a difference is made by the work of the Holy Spirit through the Word.
