Stewardship: So time is precious. The Bible tells us to make the most of every opportunity. As someone said, “If you take care of the cents, the dollars will take care of themselves”. We could also say, “If we take care of the hours, the days will take care of themselves.” Let us be faithful stewards of the time God has given us, so that when our life span is run we will not be ashamed of wasted opportunities. When we come to the end of our lives, however short or long they may be, may we hear the commendation of the Master, “Well done, good and faithful servant. Enter the joy of your Lord.” Stewardship 5 “Wise Stewards of Our Time” (Proverbs 6:6-11, Ecclesiastes 3:1-13 & Ephesians 5:15-21).
