Grateful Stewards, Risky Stewardship

Perhaps no passage has more encouraged our congregation the past few years than the familiar first verse of the twenty-third psalm: “the Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want.” Our Lord Jesus is the One shepherding us every step of our lives. And because he is the Good Shepherd, we lack nothing. We have what we need, and if we don’t have it, we must not need it.

Granted that this is so, another question arises: why do we have what we have? For what purpose has God given us the resources we possess? Today’s passage addresses that question, and does so in an unexpected way.
