Stewardship: A Way of Life

Sharing: Time Talent Treasure


“After a tragic accident which killed them both, the elderly couple arrived in heaven. A welcoming angel showed them around and then asked, “What do you think?” The elderly man was less than enthused and responded, “At home I played golf almost every day. I’m not that good, but I love golf.” The angel replied “Up here we have the most beautiful golf courses that you have ever seen and you can play a different one every day and never make a bad shot!” The old man cried and cried. His wife confused asked him “Why are you so upset?” Finally, he stopped and answered. “You know that bad heart attack that I had fifteen years ago? Well, you fed me that oat bran diet for 15 years….” and he began crying again.”*

DIETS: Vegan, no carbs, Mediterranean, diabetic, organic, gluten free, and so many more, all costing us billions of dollars to keep our ‘insides‘ clean and healthy and possibly we might live a year or more longer.. And many more billions we spend to keep the outside looking good as well.

SPIRITUAL BODY DIET: Jesus says: “I am the living bread that came down from heaven; whoever eats this bread will live forever; and the bread that I will give is My Flesh for the life of the world.” (John 6:51) “Whoever eats My Flesh and drinks My Blood has eternal life, and I will raise him on the last day. For My Flesh is true food, and My Blood is true drink. Whoever, eats My Flesh and drinks My Blood remains in Me and I in him.” (John 6:54-58)

How much time and effort do we put into our spiritual body diet? Success in this endeavor lasts for all eternity.
