Stewardship Quotes

“We can be generous not only when we feel joyful and blessed, but also when we feel neglected and deprived.”
– Stewardship Seconds, United Church of Canada

“Does your life ever feel like it’s being pounded and tossed around? Do you feel like you’re sinking, with no way of being rescued? Sometimes, it does get that bad, doesn’t it. The faithful steward knows not only when to ask for help but, more importantly, who to ask.” ~ Based on Matthew 14: 22-33
