A new Bible study, Stewardship Basics, is now available for free download from LCMS Stewardship Ministry.
The study, which was the central piece to the Major Applied Project for the Rev. Dr. Nathan Meador’s Doctor of Ministry degree, begins by defining terms like steward, stewardship, and master and goes on to explore such topics as “The First Stewardship Crisis” (Gen. 3); “Stewardship of the Gospel”; “Stewardship of Creation”; “Stewardship in Time”; and “Stewardship for Eternity.” There are eight sessions in all.
Meador describes the study as different from many others in that only one of the sessions focuses on financial issues. The rest address stewardship in all aspects of life and its resources.
Says Meador: “All of stewardship flows from whom the steward has been created and redeemed to be. This takes the whole life. Using the owner/steward distinction, the steward will learn who they are in relation to the Lord, their neighbor, and creation.”
Stewardship Basics can be found on the LCMS Stewardship page.
