Created for More Than Sunday – Created for Stewardship
Have you ever tried to fix your dishwasher with a hammer? Probably not (though you may have been tempted), as each tool has a particular purpose for which it was created. Just as using the right tool is necessary to get the job done, so, too, are our lives more purposeful and joyful when we’re doing what God created us to do and being who God created us to be.
The book of Genesis tells us we are stewards of God’s creation. Adam and Eve were the first stewards when God blessed them with “working and keeping” the Garden of Eden. We are all called to be stewards like Adam and Eve. But how? What does it mean to us to be stewards of God’s creation?
