The American church typically describes good stewardship as taking care of facilities, properly accounting for income and expenses, and clearly communicating with members and donors. Those things are all well and good. But going forward, our understanding of good stewardship should also include the biblical expectation of knowing what to do with the assets entrusted to us. The collective church must prove to be a good and faithful servant by leveraging its assets to bless the community and generate sustainable income. In short, faithful churches can no longer afford to sit on their assets!
- Matthew 25:14-30
