We have commitment day at our church soon, the time when we pledge our giving and service for 2015.
Stewardship is certainly not new. The prophet Malachi said:
“Bring all the tithes into the storehouse,
That there may be food in my house,
And try me now in this,”
Says the Lord of hosts.
“If I will not open the windows of heaven and pour out for you such blessings that there will not be room enough to receive it.
And I will rebuke the devourer for you sakes, so that he will not destroy the fruit of your land,
Nor shall the vine fail to bear fruit for you in the field,”
Says the Lord of hosts,
“And all the nations will call you blessed, for you will be a delightful land,”
Says the Lord of hosts. (Malachi 3:8-12)
Be sure to attend a worship service this weekend, and don’t forget to invite someone to attend with you.
