  • Stewardship, Generosity and Money
Luke 14:7-24
RS 322-03


Naturally we’re inclined to spend our money on ourselves and if we have any left over, we will give it to ministry and charity. However, Jesus shows us how our priorities need to change. Giving to ministry and charity must come first. Only then should we figure out how to spend the rest of our money. Yet, it is only through the Gospel that we can give so much away. It is only when we are spiritually rich that we can stop looking at money as our real wealth and security. It is only when we look forward to the resurrection that we can be assured that the sacrifices we’ve made in this life will pale in comparison to the joys awaiting us in the age to come.

Luke 14:7–24

Jesus’ stories teach us the value of being humble and giving to others without expecting anything in return. This goes against what society often tells us about promoting ourselves and favoring those who are rich. Jesus encourages us to give in a big way, just like he did, and reminds us to include those who are often left out. He also talks about the big reward waiting for us in God’s kingdom – a grand feast and new bodies in the afterlife.
