Shift 4 - Consumer to Steward

Tom Harding

Consumer to Steward is a shift in ownership from acquiring things for ourselves to offering what we have to God and others. Our souls may be saved, but we are still consumers. We complain about our salaries, fatten our retirements, stockpile more than we can use, and then want more. Over time, the Holy Spirit will change us into being stewards who see that all we have is only borrowed from God. We will become less attached to things and more generous. We will no longer measure life in terms of possessions. And we won't even miss them when they're gone.
