Making a commitment to stewardship is a particular challenge with the current emphasis on materialism, consumerism and leisure time. We realise that we are involve in a gradual on going conversation process. It involves a change of heart, of mind, of values, of budget, of calendar, of time and of self-control. We are called to say ‘Yes’ to God and to a way of life he has spelled out for us in the Bible. We are call to say ‘No’ to influences in our society that emphasise materialistic values that are selfish, thoughtless and oppose to stewardship as a way of life.
