All sincere believers long to hear those wonderful words from our Lord and Savior on Judgment Day: “Well done, my good and faithful servant!” But issues of stewardship can be as confusing as they are challenging. Is it biblical to borrow money? Is tithing commanded in Scripture? How much money is appropriate to keep, and how much should be given to the poor and needy? This 16-part series answers those questions and dozens more like them. It explains that true, biblical stewardship involves much more than just money.

Both the history of Christianity and our own consciences testify to what the Bible clearly teaches: over-indulgence in material things is a morally dangerous and potentially deadly sin. Yet, even many denominations within Christendom have struggled greatly in determining where to draw the lines in indulgence which begs the question: if it is wrong to be overly-indulgent with material things, yet even the church itself has struggled in this area, then where does one draw such lines? How much is too much?

The Good Steward has been designed to help draw those lines. Not by creating an arbitrary, man-made list of dos-and-don’ts. Rather, by exegetically drawing out from Scripture the principles, precepts and promises of God that will provide the true, sincere, regenerate Christian with a biblical template that can be safely and reliably placed over the myriad of ever-changing, highly individualized circumstances of life; a flexible template, yet one able to provide a definitive, unwavering, unchanging direction in each and every individual circumstance.

Hosted by Mark Kieler, The Good Steward series offers powerful tools to help align your stewardship with the instructions presented in the Bible. Don’t miss out on this life-changing series!

About Word Pictures

From CrossTV/Word Pictures:

People are tired of a mock, pseudo, superficial Christianity. They’re realizing that despite all the hype and emotion up front, in the final analysis, much of modern Christianity is nothing more than a “form of Godliness, without the power.” (2 Timothy 3:5) Yet, there is a new, God-sent thirst and hunger amongst a relatively small (but rapidly growing) remnant of people, to experience, know, love, obey, suffer for, and serve the one, true, living God with all their hearts, souls, minds, and strength.

And those same people want a true, straight talking, plain speaking, “don’t tell me what you think I want to hear; tell me what I need to hear,” biblically accurate interpretation and exposition of God’s Word. They want to know what God wants us to know, the way he wants us to know it.

And people have grown weary of being hit up for money, or given “fluff” in place of doctrine, or having their intelligence insulted or placated in the name of Christianity. The result has been a genuine longing for the preaching and teaching that the Spurgeons and Wesleys and Edwardses of yesteryear were renowned for.

“Word Pictures” is one ministry’s God-fearing attempt to be faithful to that call.
