On a trip into Norwich I went into St Peter Mancroft Church near the Forum and market place, to see quite a surprising sculpture.
It was a six-metre diameter, internally lit, rotating model of the Earth. The effect this gives is like the view astronauts get from outer space. We, like them, get a special view of our blue planet in the black void of space. You may still have time to go and see it as it is a touring sculpture.
Psalm 24:1 says, “The Earth is the Lord’s and all that is in it, the world, and those who live in it”. Reading this verse and with the picture in my mind of the sculpture, I was reminded that we are stewards of all that we have been given. God has entrusted so much to our care and to our keeping, to your care and to your keeping!
How is your stewardship? I’m not just talking about care of our world, but to everything we have been gifted with. Think about stewardship of your time, the stewardship of your money and the stewardship of your gifts.
Stop for a few moments and give thanks to God for all His gifts to you, then think about your own time, treasure and talents and seek to be a good steward of all He has given.
Do I hear an ‘Amen’?
