Resource-Stewarding Devotions

Being resource-stewards means maximizing our time, talent, and treasure for the glory of God and the good of others. The opposite of resource-stewarding is resource-wasting.

The following posts urge us not to waste some of the often-overlooked resources God entrusts to us, situations that present us with opportunities to display the glory of God.

What would it look like to do those everyday things with a holy ambition to maximize them all for the glory of God and the good of others?
