Sisters and Brothers,
This week’s Stewardship blog is brought to you by Michael & Barbara Baker. We have 3 daughters, raised from Baptism through high school Celebrate ministry here at St. Patrick. We have 1 granddaughter and another one expected this fall. We will be celebrating our 36th wedding anniversary this November. In writing this article, The task became one of research and self reflection. Kind of a nice stop and think time.
Stewardship is defined as the careful & responsible management of something entrusted to one’s care. We are accountable to God for everything God has given us, our talents, interests, skills, family.
1 Corinthians 3:9 for we are God’s fellow workers, you are God’s field, God’s building.
Our responsibility now is to manage these gifts for the glory of God and the betterment of all His creation.
1 Peter 4:10 as each has received a gift, use it to serve one another as a good steward of God’s varied grace.
Father Tim O’Neil ~ unselfish giving.
Blessings for good week.
Michael & Barbara Baker
