Principles of Good Stewardship: Readiness to Do Good Works, Give, and Communicate to Others
1st Timothy 6:18. Good stewardship is a lifestyle devoted to good works, giving, and having godly relationships with our fellowmen. 1st Timothy 6:18-19 says, “That they do good, that they be rich in good works, ready to distribute, willing to communicate; Laying up in store for themselves a good foundation against the time to come, that they may lay hold on eternal life.” These scriptures specifically address rich men, but these principles of good stewardship apply to all who desire to be good stewards.
Good stewardship at its core is about doing good for the glory of God. God is good and what is not of God is bad. As good stewards we are to seek God’s goodness and do his goodness. 1 Timothy 6:18 mentions the following three characteristics of being a good stewardship:
1. Doing Good Works. Good stewardship is a lifestyle of being always ready to do good works and not just doing good work on certain occasions.
2. Give to Others. A good steward is always being ready to give of their selves and not just limiting their giving to a certain percentage or quota.
3. Communicate and Encourage Others. Good stewardship means being always ready to reach out to people to encourage, buildup, and help others to strengthen their relationship with God.
