Leadership Is Stewardship
Leaders are stewards, not owners of God’s recourses (1 Corinthians 4:1-2). We must both
model and teach God’s people about the stewardship of their time, talent and money. The
purpose of this study is to teach God’s financial principles in order to know Christ more
intimately, be free to serve him and to fund the Great Commission.

Because God cares for us He gave us guidelines for handling money. The Bible contains more
than 2,350 verses dealing with money and possesions. Jesus taught more about money than
almost any other subject. He spoke of it in sixteen of His thirty-eight parables. We all
understand that money is a practical issue in life, but it is also a spiritual issue as we lead our
families and ministries. Where we put our money reveals much about our spiritual life. Jesus
said, “Where your treasure is, there your heart will be also” (Matthew 6:21).

The way we handle our money has an impact on how intimate our relationship is with
Christ. Money is a primary competitor with Christ for the lordship of our lives (Matthew
6:24). God desires to exercise Lordship over all… and that includes our finances.



In this session we will look at:

       Ownership versus stewardship
       Earning and budgeting
       Saving and debt
       Integrity and teaching your people

Leadership, Ownership and Stewardship
It is important for leaders to recognize the difference between ownership and
stewardship. God is the owner. We are stewards. God maintains certain responsibilities
and He has given other responsibilities to us. Let’s examine the difference:

God’s Part

    1. God is the ____________of______________. (Psalms 24:1)
    2. God is in _____________. (Psalm 135:6)
    3. God will provide for our _____________. (Philippians 4:19)

Our Part

    1. We are stewards of ____________ possessions. (A steward is a manager of
        someone else’s possessions).
    2. We are to be ____________. (I Corinthians 4:2).
    3. When we are faithful, we will ____________ in three ways:
      a. We will grow closer to Jesus Christ.
      b. We will develop godly character.
      c. We will begin to have financial stability.
John Wesley lived by these financial rules in the 18th Century:

                                            Earn all you can.
                                            Save all you can.
                                            Give all you can.



Let’s use this as an outline for our discussion in this lesson.



_________________      All You Can
The Bible instructs us to work hard, as if we worked directly for the Lord (Colossians 3:23-
25). In Proverbs 6:6-11, we are told to study a tiny bug – the ant – to see a model for our
work ethic. The ant displays the following three characteristics:

   1. Initiative – The ant needs no ruler to tell it to work.
   2. Industry – The ant works hard preparing food for the future.
   3. Integrity – The ant does not labor for money or selfish gain.

Earning all you can is not about setting a goal to make more money; it’s not about greed.
In fact, Scripture warns us about greed. Timothy teaches that greed brings all kinds of
snares, and that the love of money is the root of all sorts of evil (I Timothy 6:9-10).

To earn all you can and not be controlled by greed is essential. The key is contentment.
Paul the Apostle wrote, “Now godliness actually is a means of great gain when
accompanied by contentment.” (I Timothy 6:6) So, how much can we accumulate as a
Scripture provides an answer:

     “And if we have food and covering, with these we shall be content.” I Timothy 6:8

Earning all we can is about working hard. It’s also about earning more so we can invest it
in the needs of others. We’ll discuss this in more detail in the “Give All You Can” section of
this lesson.

_________________      All You Can
Saving is about preparing for the future. Scripture encourages saving. Note the following
guidelines for saving money:

   1. Save only if you are also ______________.
   2. Save ______________.
   3. Why save?
      a. Save for unexpected _______________.
      b. Save for longer-term _______________.
      c. Save for major _______________.
      d. Save for ________________ (future investing).
   4. _______________ get-rich-quick plans and gambling (Proverbs 28:22).
Budgeting Your Income

In order to save all you can, you will need to use a budget to manage your money. Using
a budget is simply telling your money where you want it to go, instead of guessing where
it all went.

1. Develop and use a plan to control spending (Proverbs 27:23). Using a spending plan
   is a practical and wise way for you to control your spending patterns.
   Example: Sit down and plan your budget each year. Determine which needs should
   take priority in the budget, including any debt that you have. Next, establish how
   much money you can invest in each area before you spend anything. Write it down
   on paper and choose someone to hold you accountable to it.
2. Repay what is borrowed (Psalms 37:21). If you do have debt, include it in your
   budget so you can repay it as promptly as possible (Proverbs 3:27-28).

_________________     All You Can
The Scripture calls us to give generously. We are never more like God than when we’re
giving. “For God so loved the world, that He gave. . .” Jesus celebrated those who gave
sacrificially, beyond the call of duty. The following passages of Scripture encourage us to
give:

1. Give to your ____________ (Malachi 3:10; Matthew 23:23)
    Tithing is one tenth of your income: Hebrews 7:3,6; Proverbs 3:9-10
2. Give to other ___________ (Matthew 10:42, Mark 10:29-30)
   This is investing in the Gospel above your regular gifts: Luke 6:38
3. Give to the ______________. (Proverbs 19:17)
    This is sharing with people in need, as though they were Christ.

Leadership is stewardship (ej guevarra)

  • 1. Leadership Is Stewardship Leaders are stewards, not owners of God’s recourses (1 Corinthians 4:1-2). We must both model and teach God’s people about the stewardship of their time, talent and money. The purpose of this study is to teach God’s financial principles in order to know Christ more intimately, be free to serve him and to fund the Great Commission. Because God cares for us He gave us guidelines for handling money. The Bible contains more than 2,350 verses dealing with money and possesions. Jesus taught more about money than almost any other subject. He spoke of it in sixteen of His thirty-eight parables. We all understand that money is a practical issue in life, but it is also a spiritual issue as we lead our families and ministries. Where we put our money reveals much about our spiritual life. Jesus said, “Where your treasure is, there your heart will be also” (Matthew 6:21). The way we handle our money has an impact on how intimate our relationship is with Christ. Money is a primary competitor with Christ for the lordship of our lives (Matthew 6:24). God desires to exercise Lordship over all… and that includes our finances. In this session we will look at: Ownership versus stewardship Earning and budgeting Saving and debt Integrity and teaching your people Leadership, Ownership and Stewardship It is important for leaders to recognize the difference between ownership and stewardship. God is the owner. We are stewards. God maintains certain responsibilities and He has given other responsibilities to us. Let’s examine the difference: God’s Part 1. God is the ____________of______________. (Psalms 24:1) 2. God is in _____________. (Psalm 135:6) 3. God will provide for our _____________. (Philippians 4:19) Our Part 1. We are stewards of ____________ possessions. (A steward is a manager of someone else’s possessions). 2. We are to be ____________. (I Corinthians 4:2). 3. When we are faithful, we will ____________ in three ways: a. We will grow closer to Jesus Christ. b. We will develop godly character. c. We will begin to have financial stability.
  • 2. John Wesley lived by these financial rules in the 18th Century: Earn all you can. Save all you can. Give all you can. Let’s use this as an outline for our discussion in this lesson. _________________ All You Can The Bible instructs us to work hard, as if we worked directly for the Lord (Colossians 3:23- 25). In Proverbs 6:6-11, we are told to study a tiny bug – the ant – to see a model for our work ethic. The ant displays the following three characteristics: 1. Initiative – The ant needs no ruler to tell it to work. 2. Industry – The ant works hard preparing food for the future. 3. Integrity – The ant does not labor for money or selfish gain. Earning all you can is not about setting a goal to make more money; it’s not about greed. In fact, Scripture warns us about greed. Timothy teaches that greed brings all kinds of snares, and that the love of money is the root of all sorts of evil (I Timothy 6:9-10). To earn all you can and not be controlled by greed is essential. The key is contentment. Paul the Apostle wrote, “Now godliness actually is a means of great gain when accompanied by contentment.” (I Timothy 6:6) So, how much can we accumulate as a Scripture provides an answer: “And if we have food and covering, with these we shall be content.” I Timothy 6:8 Earning all we can is about working hard. It’s also about earning more so we can invest it in the needs of others. We’ll discuss this in more detail in the “Give All You Can” section of this lesson. _________________ All You Can Saving is about preparing for the future. Scripture encourages saving. Note the following guidelines for saving money: 1. Save only if you are also ______________. 2. Save ______________. 3. Why save? a. Save for unexpected _______________. b. Save for longer-term _______________. c. Save for major _______________. d. Save for ________________ (future investing). 4. _______________ get-rich-quick plans and gambling (Proverbs 28:22).
  • 3. Budgeting Your Income In order to save all you can, you will need to use a budget to manage your money. Using a budget is simply telling your money where you want it to go, instead of guessing where it all went. 1. Develop and use a plan to control spending (Proverbs 27:23). Using a spending plan is a practical and wise way for you to control your spending patterns. Example: Sit down and plan your budget each year. Determine which needs should take priority in the budget, including any debt that you have. Next, establish how much money you can invest in each area before you spend anything. Write it down on paper and choose someone to hold you accountable to it. 2. Repay what is borrowed (Psalms 37:21). If you do have debt, include it in your budget so you can repay it as promptly as possible (Proverbs 3:27-28). _________________ All You Can The Scripture calls us to give generously. We are never more like God than when we’re giving. “For God so loved the world, that He gave. . .” Jesus celebrated those who gave sacrificially, beyond the call of duty. The following passages of Scripture encourage us to give: 1. Give to your ____________ (Malachi 3:10; Matthew 23:23) Tithing is one tenth of your income: Hebrews 7:3,6; Proverbs 3:9-10 2. Give to other ___________ (Matthew 10:42, Mark 10:29-30) This is investing in the Gospel above your regular gifts: Luke 6:38 3. Give to the ______________. (Proverbs 19:17) This is sharing with people in need, as though they were Christ.
