Christ calls us to be stewards of God’s creation. Stewardship defines every part of our life and who we are as individuals by actively committing to stewardship as a way of life. The essential component of this way of life is thanksgiving. It is recognizing that everything comes from God and our natural response is gratitude. Financial stewardship, or tithing to the church, is one method of expressing gratitude to God and challenges us to be crucifixional in our material desires to serve God. Tithing gives us the opportunity to be a part of something great, show our love for the church an ensure she continues to thrive.
