A steward can be likened to a manager. A manager oversees on behalf of someone a role of leadership and followership. Although he or she has authority, they work for the owner and are therefore a servant.
Qualities Of a Good Steward
- Mindful of Jesus’ return
- He is a caretaker
- Recognition of the fact that he has authority only because of the master
Biblical Examples of Stewards
- Joseph. Gen 39:1-9
- Parable of talents. Matt 25:14-30
