A Daily Devotion for Tuesday, August 2



I Corinthians 4:2


Now it is required that those who have been given a trust must prove faithful.


This means me. There is no way to escape the fact. I have been given a trust. I am not one to litter or to destroy anything in nature, but this week has led me to question some other decisions I have made. I will pray about these things, and do my best to find ways to be a better steward.

I Corinthians 4:2 The legal system defines a trust as an arrangement whereby a person (a trustee) holds property as its nominal owner for the good of one or more beneficiaries. Creation has been placed in our care for all those who come behind us until all is renewed by Christ’s return and full restoration of the new heaven and new earth takes place. As trustees we have duties and obligations that we ignore not only at our own peril, but that of our children, their children and beyond. Part of faith in action is creation care. This verse unambiguously reminds us it is required.


Prayer - Creator God, I pray I may be found trustworthy in the care of Your…
