Stewardship ... A Journey of Faith
Our Time - Our Talent - Our Treasure ... Our Faith - Our Family - Our Prayers

 

St. Paul Rosary Path

 

St. Paul's is on a faith journey to make stewardship a way of life. 
We invite you to join with us on our journey.  It will change your life forever.

"As each one has received a gift, use it to serve one another
as good stewards of God's varied grace".  (1 Peter 4:10 NAB)

 

     
 
What is Stewardship?
 
     
 
  • Stewardship is having the wisdom to understand that everything we have is a gift from God
    of which we are to be the absolute best caretakers.

  • Stewardship is a way of life, honoring God in everything we do with all His gifts. 
    Living life God-centered rather than self-centered ... thinking of Him first before our own wants.

  • Stewardship is having the heart to give back out of love a portion of every gift that has been entrusted to us by God.

  • Stewardship is living life with the understanding that some day God will ask each and every one of us what we did with all of His varied gifts.

  • Stewardship is a life long faith journey that brings us ever closer to Jesus Christ; following the path He so perfectly laid out for us through His life example.

  • Stewardship is life altering and its rewards last an eternity.

 
 
What are two great examples of Stewardship?
 
     
 

One

"For God so loved the world that he gave His only Son, so that everyone who believes in
Him might not perish but might have eternal life."

 
     
  This is the ultimate act of stewardship that God did for us. 
What gift can we give to God in return for the greatest gift of all ... His Son ... Jesus Christ.

Live your life here on earth God-centered rather than self-centered. 
Honor God first in everything you do, and everything you do will be for Him.
 
     
  Two

"Your ancestors ate the manna in the desert, but they died; this is the bread that comes down from heaven
so that one may eat it and not die.  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 6:49-51 NAB)
 
     
  The Holy Eucharist:  All over the world Jesus Christ shares His body and blood
with us in the Holy Eucharist as "real food" to nourish our soul. 
This is Christ sharing His body, blood, soul and divinity with us every day. 
It is the holiest act of stewardship.
 
     
  Live life God-centered
rather than self-centered.

A Stewardship Prayer
 
  Dear Lord,
I pray that You give me the wisdom
to guide me on this faith journey of
stewardship.

Help me to understand that
everything I have is a gift from You.

Open up my heart and my mind so
that I may use these marvelous
gifts to give back to You here on earth.

I pray Lord that You welcome me
into Your kingdom at the end of
my life and that You are pleased
with what I have done with
all Your gifts.

Amen
