Who is the steward of your life?


The answer is you are. Then if I have already answered the question then why even pursue writing further? Because too many are poor stewards of their own lives. A steward is the administrator of your household or estate or in this case you. Who else should this burden fall upon? If you answered other than no one you are not following the teachings of the of Bible and so are following what the world wants you to do so you will be of the world and not of God.
Jesus discusses stewardship in Luke 16 and even states within the chapter that you cannot follow God and mammon which means money. Where does money come from? The world. So you can not follow God and the world. He states you must love one and despise the other.
If you are able to work but have no desire to do so, but to collect welfare and food stamps and make no effort to end this you have chosen to despise God and the Bible.
There will be times when we have rough times. I myself have been on welfare and food stamps, but I refused to stay upon them for I felt like I was stealing from others. I felt I had been a bad steward to my life, which is true, I had been.
This mentality that you are owed something is lie. No one owes you anything. The only person that owes you is yourself. For we are accountable for our own actions. Not the actions of others be they alive or dead. It is our free-will choices that govern us and our behavior. If we choose not to work and to take from the government then we are refusing to be our own steward and allowing someone else to do so. As a result poverty increases, crime increase, sin increases and God is not happy.
Do not lie to yourselves and feel that if you go to church on Sunday and steal from others the rest of the week that you will be welcomed with open arm by God. For Jesus made it very clear that poor stewards will not receive our eternal reward in the service of God.
