“Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, That there may be food in my house. Put me to the test, says the Lord of hosts, And see if I do not open the floodgates of heaven for you, and pour down upon you blessing without measure!” Malachi 3:10

To be good stewards is to use our time, talents, and treasure to build the Kingdom of God. We use what we need for ourselves wisely and then work together to help those in need around us. It is listening to Jesus tell us the greatest commandment is to love God and the second is to love our neighbor as ourselves.

A focus of the Stewardship Committee in 2022 is to help us understand more about the danger of cyrptocurrency mining.  Use this fact sheet from Seneca Lake Guardian to get started.  Be on the look out for ways the Stewardship Committee will ask us to get involved.

For each of us, the call to be a good steward is different. It can also be different for each of us at different points in our lives. For instance, a young family may not have much treasure to give but has the gift of time.  A retired person on fixed income may not have treasure to share but have more time. We must each decide for ourselves, with the help of a community of believers, to discern how God is calling us to be good stewards.
