In this collection, pastor, author, and financial counselor Jay Link addresses the often neglected concept of stewardship. In many churches, stewardship is used as a synonym for giving, or inaccurately stripped down to signifying tithes and offerings. Throughout these comprehensive texts, Link invites Christians to see giving and stewardship in a new light. He explores what giving is and what it looks like in the New Testament, revealing an understanding of stewardship not as synonymous with giving, but rather, as contrary to it. Stewardship is not about what we give, but what we keep.
Link explores how to enact this life-transforming view of stewardship in practical, intentional ways. He provides experienced insights, biblical counsel, and thought-provoking questions which help you assess your relationship to possessions, view everything as God’s possession, and determine how to use possessions in the best way. While his focus is primarily directed towards financial resources, Link also shows how these principles can extend to time, energies, and talents.This collection is a great resource for both individuals and pastors, supplying ample material for individual or small group study, while also providing tools to lead congregations in a new understanding and practice of biblical stewardship.
