Stewardship at Renewed Treasures Ministries: Giving Back What Is God’s
Remember Matthew 25.21. Jesus tells a parable of the servant whose master gave him charge of five bags of gold. Diligently, he doubled the treasure. And when the time of reckoning came, the servant reaped his reward: “His master replied, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your master’s happiness!’” Here at Renewed Treasures Ministries, we find ourselves blessed by the work God has given us: we share in His happiness by doing His will, and our happiness increases wherever He places us in His trust.
At Renewed Treasures, God calls us to be stewards of men and women whom the world has abandoned, though He has not. God calls us to be stewards of the houses and the finances and the legal and educational and moral guidance of these individuals. And, as our duties grow, so indeed does our collective happiness in the Lord and His work. Stewardship is, by definition, taking responsibility for resources belonging to another. Well, everything belongs to God.
But there’s always more to do than there are stewards to serve. As Jesus tells us in Luke 10.2, “The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field.” In obedience to this Scripture, we do “ask the Lord of the harvest” to send help. Perhaps as you read this very passage, you feel the Spirit moving you join in and aid our mission at the Renewed Treasures Ministries .Renewed Treasures Ministries of Springfield, Missouri Transitional Home for men and women • Faith-Based Recovery Programs • Parenting and
