Moreover it is required in stewards, that a man be found faithful. – 1 Corinthians 4:2
When Christians are exercising integrity in stewardship, they exhibit certain characteristics of faithfulness at every phase of their lives. That person is not someone who “wastes his goods.” In other words, every bit of money that comes into a faithful steward’s hands, he or she will ask the Lord how He wants that money used. And when the Lord gives that person instruction concerning the money, they are not aggravated, vexed, or grieved about it.
Never permit it to be said of you that you wasted God’s goods. Never permit a worldly attitude about money to take hold of your mind, the Holy Spirit is the Master of stewardship. If you yield to the Spirit of God and to His Word, He’ll lead you in such a way that if you obey Him, it will never be said of you that you abused your position with the Lord.
