Stewardship is how we take care of everything God has given to us. Stewardship comes from the word, steward. A good steward is one who does a good job taking care of something. If we want to be good stewards for God, we must take care of the many things God has given us. We all share a responsibility for stewardship or care of the environment. It is our sacred duty to ensure that the choices we make individually and collectively show that we respect God and we respect God’s creation.
