Of stewards and kings.

Cheerfully share your home with those who need a meal or a place to stay. I Pet. 4:9

In The Lord of the Rings, the king comes to Gondor and the stewards of  Gondor feel threatened because they will no longer be in charge of the  city. Calling what we do with our time, energy, wealth and possessions “stewardship” recognizes that we are merely keepers of these things for our King. We act on His behalf when we invite others into our homes and share what He has left us to steward.

Lord, I need a king and I’m grateful that You have trusted me with all I enjoy.
