Go to church for very long, and you are bound to hear someone utter the ‘s-word’ in church. By that I mean stewardship. We often cringe when the conversation of increasing our giving comes up, especially in challenging economic times. Jesus challenges us to break away from the consumer-driven mentality that so permeates our culture and to embrace the ‘God-reality’ that he describes in the Sermon on the Mount. As we do this we find that our perspective on giving (and on life in general) changes. We put God’s portion aside first, regardless of the economy or other life circumstances.
