We desire that our lives be ordered by God. Everything He has given us, our talents, our time, and our treasure are truly gifts from Him. With this recognition, we take the words of Jesus given to us in Luke 16:11 very seriously, “Therefore if you have not been faithful in the use of unrighteous wealth, who will entrust the true riches to you?” We want God to have trust and confidence in us so He can give us the “true riches.” We prove our trustworthiness to God by being faithful with the three T’s He’s entrusted to our care.
