Stewardship Quotes

“‘All we have’ can be a little or a lot. There is always a way to reach out to our neighbour.”
– Stewardship Seconds, United Church of Canada

“There’s a certain ‘edge’ to this story, isn’t there. ‘Many are called, but few are chosen.’ We now these words only too well. Some even use them jokingly. Do you think Jesus was joking? A wise steward will not only listen to these words, but take them to heart.” ~ Based on Matthew 22: 1-14
