Throughout his life, Pope Francis has been an amazing and humble witness to living simply and caring for others. From the beginning of his papacy, he has shown us how to use the gifts God has given us to care for one another and the world. Pope Francis speaks of stewardship with language that is fresh and fitting for the modern world, and yet the call to live out good stewardship is as ancient as the Scriptures themselves.
The command that we live as stewards was first given to us in the Book of Genesis, where we are told God made every good thing for us and then entrusted it to us so we would care for it. None of us is exempt from this command, for all of us have been given great gifts from our heavenly Father.
With the new year upon us, and Lent quickly approaching, this is an ideal time to reflect on your personal stewardship efforts. Have you been using the gifts entrusted to you wisely and sharing them generously? Does your faithful stewardship bear witness to the love of Christ?
