STEWARDSHIP CORNER - 28th Sunday in Ordinary Time
My God will supply whatever you need.... - PHILIPPIANS 4:19
God really does provide for those who are grateful and generous. This is very difficult for people that don't live a stewardship lifestyle to believe. People are skeptical and say it's just coincidence. If you are skeptical, try living a stewardship lifestyle for just one month - be generous with your gifts of time, talent and treasure and see how God provides for your needs.
