Repost: The Real Reason for Poor Stewardship

I hope everyone had a great Fourth of July. I’m enjoying the mountains right now with my family and trying to rest and read a lot. For this week, I’m dusting off some old posts that I liked. I’ll be back next week with new posts. But for now, I hope you’ll enjoy this post and also this beautiful summer.

Today’s repost is The Real Reason for Poor Stewardship.

“If only I could figure out a good system to get organized, then I could finally move towards being a good steward of my time…”
“I’m not really managing my time well right now – but as soon as I get out of this rough patch in my life…”
“I’m going to start taking my time seriously…starting soon, real soon…really…”

Sound familiar?

It does to me. I’m pretty good at finding reasons to justify my complacency.

Like take this morning. I overslept. And in my fleshly mind, I had a good reason! I have a 5-month old baby that has a real set of lungs on him when he gets crying. But when I woke up naturally at 6 AM, I knew I should get out of bed – I just ignored my conscience and hit my pillow again.

Maybe you think you’ve got your own reasons for struggling with being a good steward. You don’t have a good system. Now is not a good time. You don’t know enough.

But Jesus tells us what the real reason is.
