The Bible Teaches Us about Stewardship


The Bible Teaches Us That Stewardship is Personal


Stewardship, in its simplest form, is the practice of generosity. It is essential to the daily expression of our faith. As a church that is energized by lively engagement in our faith and life, we know that understanding personal and household stewardship is crucial in responding to God’s abundant grace.


Each of us has a unique story, and we are part of a larger story that makes up the LCMS. In the Road to Emmaus story, it is at the household table where Christ is revealed and recognized, where hearts are warmed for greater sharing and generosity. Recognizing God’s story in our own story shapes our lives, identity and choices. When we join with other individuals and households in making daily decisions rooted in the stories of our loving and benevolent God, the result is our increased capacity to give generously and boldly participate in what God is up to in the world.


Developing a culture of gratitude and generosity is the focus for growing stewards in our congregation. Through the study of Scripture, we develop a trust in God’s abundance and strive to be faithful disciples and stewards. The formation of these stewards is a lifelong journey, and one in which we accompany each other.

Congregations have the opportunity to be a voice that teaches some very different ideas about time, talent and treasure. The practice of generosity takes the support of an entire faith community, conversation between individuals in all generations and a focus on households.

Living generously begins with the involvement of children and continues through every age andstage of life. The resources offered here support our congregations along with other congregations in equipping households and individuals in becoming faith-filled, lifelong stewards.
