Christian stewardship is the Christian’s response of love and thankfulness to the redemptive love of God in Jesus Christ. The response is expressed by a responsible use of the earth and the rest of creation, so that neither human nor animal life is endangered. It is also when we use our money and other material possessions prudently in providing for our families, and in promoting the Church’s ministry to the world.
