Christian Fellowship

John Calvin puts forward a very simple reason why love is the greatest gift: “Because faith and hope are our own: love is diffused among others.” In other words, faith and hope benefit the possessor, but love always benefits another. In John 13:34–35 Jesus says, “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” Love always requires an “other” as an object; love cannot remain within itself, and that is part of what makes love the greatest gift.

Good Stewardship

Recommended Posts

Living in the modern world the word steward brings up the images of airplane hostess and host more than what it traditionally referred to in the Bible. Because it's hard to image a steward, it's hard to imagine ourselves as stewards. I just remember the parable about the stewards where one buries his master's money while the other grew the money and increased it. Even though the first steward hadn't spent his master's money, his failure to increase it meant he failed. It's kind of like how we are giving forgiveness so we need to spread the good news so more people can receive God's blessing. What else do you think is part of your stewardship as a Christian?

    • Give Kids the Big Picture of Stewardship

      Matt and Kelly Kaye live in Memphis with their two sons, Ross and Nash. To teach Ross and Nash biblical principles of saving and giving, they created TillSOS, a wooden till that helps children manage their money by dividing it into five categories: God, Others, Savings, Spending, and Extra. Under each category, a purposeful Scripture reference is overlaid on artwork, which helps them better understand the true source of stewardship (SOS). The Kayes are hoping to share TillSOS with interested fam
