Stewardship By the BookThe blind man was willing to let Jesus minister to him and willingly did all Jesus asked of him. The Pharisees were more resistant to His message, spending their time and energy to disprove the miracle. Which am I more like, the man born blind or the Pharisees?
Vocation ViewIf we can’t see where we are going, we’ll never get there. The Good Shepherd leads us to green pastures, refreshes our souls and brings light to a darkened world.
Stewardship Reflections“Not as man sees does God see, because man sees the appearance but the Lord looks into the heart.” 1Samuel 16:7
How often do we invest our time, talent and treasure in creating an appearance that does not matter at all to God? We strive to impress with our clothing, home, career, possessions, car and other marks of distinction. But none of these illusions of greatness will impress God. Instead, He will look into our hearts to see how much we loved Him, how much we loved others and how we showed that love by the way we used our time, talent and treasure here on earth.
