Hearts of Gratitude

Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning. James 1:17

The Lord has given His children so many "good and perfect" gifts. Stewards have never been more needed than in this day, this hour, this moment! Not reluctant, apathetic stewards, but stewards with eager, grateful hearts who long to serve Him, preserve His Word, and share His love. Consider how much God gave:

God commanded us to be faithful stewards (Luke 12:35-38, 42 and Titus 1:7), not embezzling stewards (Luke 16:1-12), and not unjust stewards (Luke 16:1-9). We are to be stewards of all He has given us--by our faith, by our obedience to His Word, by the way we use His gifts, by the exercise of His power through prayer, and by appropriating His peace, His care, and His promises.

Every gift from Him requires our faithful attention. Thank you for sharing your gifts with ICR on the Lord's behalf. Pray that we will tend them well and so honor Him!
