Stewardship Stories

 A father once told a story about taking his young son to a baseball game. On the way to the stands, he bought a package of peanuts and gave them to his son. As the game got underway, he asked if he could have a peanut. The little boy clutched the bag tightly and said, “No! They’re mine!” So the father said, “Okay, I was just hoping you would want to share some with me.” The little boy thought about that for a moment, and then he held out the bag and said, “You can have some, Dad.” The father took a peanut and put his arm around his son and said, “You know, it’s really not about peanuts; it’s about us doing things together and sharing what we have with each other.” That’s how it is: God gives to us, and we give to others. We are conduits of God’s grace and love, and the more we give, the more we have to give!
