Stewardsihip Emphasis:

FAITHFULNESS is one of the rich words in our language. It is as deep as the character and as spacious as the soul. It stands for responsibility and devotion, trust and dependability. It is a beautiful word. Faithfulness with all that it implies is the very soul of stewardship.

"Well done, good and faithful servant, because you have been faithful over a little; I will set you over much"

Matthew 25:21
