Stewardship Quotes

“Stewards trust that God will replenish what has been given freely, and so dare to be
wellsprings for others.”
– Stewardship Seconds, United Church of Canada

“John called on the people to undergo a ‘change of heart.’ The faithful steward is one who has undergone such a change.” ~ Based on Mark 1: 1-8
