“Before we can give, we must possess, and before we possess we must receive. Therefore, stewardship is, in the first place, receiving God’s good and bounteous gifts.  Once received, those gifts are not to be used soley for our own good.  They must also be used for the benefit of others, and ultimately for the glory of God, the giver.  The steward needs an open hand to receive from God and then an active hand to give to God and others.”
