Stewardship of Time

How much time do you dedicate to prayer each day? One hour? Fifteen minutes? None at all? When pondering the three Ts of stewardship – time, talent, and treasure – the “time” component holds the position of greatest importance; it serves as the fertile ground from which the gifts of talent and treasure blossom. Only by spending time in prayer each day and receiving the sacraments are we able to consistently and generously donate our talent and treasure to the Church.

When we consider our participation in stewardship, we need to include our time, as well as our talent and treasure. Giving a portion of our time back to God expresses our gratitude to the God who has given us the gift of time ... which is just another way of saying the gift of our life!  

Stewardship in general is based on the understanding that all that we have and all that we are is a gift from God – our time, our talent, our money and even the gift of life itself.  We show our gratitude for these gifts by returning a portion of them back to God.

Our practice of the Stewardship of Time encourages us to reserve a percentage of every 24 hour day for prayer, the reading of scripture, spiritual reading, and other acts of worship and thanksgiving.
