“Sowing the Seed”
We all harvest from fields we did not scatter seed. We all reap where we did not sow. We all gather from orchards and vineyards where we did not plant.
Someone before us had the vision and foresight to work the land and till the soil and plant the seeds and harvest the fruit. This is the call of every generation and the holy task of every follower of Christ. Just as we inherit abundance from our ancestors, so too do we sow seeds and plant fields for those who come after us to feast abundantly on God’s grace and promise.
As we move into our annual stewardship season, we’ll explore how to cultivate the keenness of insight that makes generosity possible, the audacity of generosity that enlarges our own souls, and the selflessness of generosity that can transform the world for future generations.
Perspicacity — The Keenness of Vision
Magnanimity — The Audaciousness of Generosity
Liberality — The Selflessness of Sacrifice
1 Corinthians 3:4-9
