STEWARDSHIP CORNER AT HOLY TRINITY CHURCH

A Good Steward is Proactive. A good steward makes the choice as a true disciple of Christ and a light to the world

Reflection 326

Can We Go From Where We Are?
Go into all the world...” (Mark 16:15)
Jesus had commanded His Apostles to go and preach His word to those who would believe. The keyword…is go. I doubt Jesus would have simply expected His Apostles to just sit in and around the villages of the region waiting for followers to come by to hear about the good news of His Kingdom…anymore than a merchant would expect customers to just show up without any type of marketing or advertising. Word of mouth, it is said, is often the best method, so He directed them to go. Well, what about us?  Just pack up our family and go? Leaving the house, the job and the world behind? Don’t think it works like that. We go…by doing good from where we are. We pray for the sick, we pray for the innocent and those suffering from incursion and persecution. We share our faith in the  performance of stewardship…using the talents He has given us for the good of others. Remember to just go and do good from where you are.

  1. Hendersonville, TN suffered a severe storm and Barbara Duvall noticed her American flag suffered the worst of it. Her husband, a former Marine, died last year and Barbara had no one to help her…until a knock on the door…two boys from Troop 95 presented a new flag. The note contained no names…only Troop 95…they saw a problem and resolved it with a random act of kindness.
  2. A man approached a woman in the parking lot of a Fort Walton Beach, Fl Chick-fil-A restaurant as she was getting her child out of the car. He took the keys and attempted to take off in her car…except he was tackled by an employee who wrestled him to the ground. Others assisted in holding him until police arrived.
