The third and final concept is our treasures. There are over 2,300 biblical verses that deal with  money and possessions. This means that money and possessions are greatly important matters and are  undeniably relevant to stewardship. Over 10 percent of the New  Testament relates to financial matters. You may ask yourself why there is such an impact with money.  One reason is that God knew we would have trouble managing our money, and that we would spend a  great amount of time earning, spending, and investing it. A second reason is that money has a profound  effect on interpersonal relationships. A third reason is that the way we use our money is a real measure of  our commitment and faith to Christ. Financial freedom should be a part of our new life in Christ.  My last final thoughts are that Stewardship means a lot to God. He has everything but is waiting  on us to give it to Him. There are three T’s of Stewardship; Time, Talent, and Treasure. These three  components explain what a good steward is. My conclusion is that God already has everything you could  imagine. He asking us to be faithful with our tithe and offering. He wants to give with a willing heart. We  come into the world with nothing and leave it with nothing. God is not only the Source, but also the  Controller of all things.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
