Stewardship is a way of life The first quality of a Christian steward is being grateful. All that we have, and all that we are able to do, are gifts from God. Living a life as a Christian steward involves a deliberate decision to thank God for all His blessings by returning to Him a portion of our time, talent and treasure. Each year, Catholic households in the diocese are asked to prayerfully plan and make stewardship of time and talent a part of their lifestyle and stewardship of treasure a part of their budget.
Time God gives each of us 24 hours in a day. It is essential to balance those hours to spend time with our Lord in prayer, with our families, and at work. We need to ask ourselves: Do we spend meaningful time in prayer each day? Do we spend quality time with our families? Do we spend to mush time at work? Do we spend an appropriate amount of those 24 hours offering our talents to our parish, our diocese and our community?
Talent God has entrusted each of us with unique skills and talents. We must take time to recognize those gifts and discern how we can offer then to our parish, diocese and community to carry out the mission of the Catholic Church in Utah.
Treasure Stewardship also involves giving of treasure. All of us have different levels of material resources. We are called to return in thanksgiving a proportionate gift, each in a measure we have been blessed with.
