Each week in Rush Creek News we are exploring insights from the NIV Stewardship Study Bible. This week we want to look at one of seven purposes of our stewardship of God’s resources that recur throughout Scripture. Last time we looked at Unquenchable Compassion.

Remember, God doesn’t really need us to manage his resources. He chooses us. But why? Surely God could have chosen a way to steward his resources that more closely embodies his compassion?!

Seven Purposes for Stewardship #5

God has gifted each of his stewards with a Unique Calling. Our effective stewardship prompts us toward fulfilling our unique role in the Body of Christ. God lovingly informs us in Psalm 139:13 that he has knit each one of us together in our mother’s womb. We are individually unique creatures. And, as a species, we are unique among all of the creatures God brought into being.
