Regarding giving, the Church of the Nazarene has the following in their Covenant of Christian Conduct, “The Scriptures teach that God is the Owner of all persons and all things. We, therefore, are His stewards of both life and possessions. God’s ownership and our stewardship ought to be acknowledged, for we shall be held personally accountable to God for the exercise of our stewardship.”

We are reminded in Matthew 6: 21, “…where your treasure is, there your heart will be also” and 1 John 3: 17 says, ” 17 If anyone has material possessions and sees a brother or sister in need but has no pity on them, how can the love of God be in that person?

When we refer to being a good steward, however, it isn’t just tied to giving. We believe in being a good steward in everything God has blessed us with. Those three things are time, talent, and treasure. We also believe that God honors those who are faithful stewards of these three things.
