The All-Encompassing Nature of Stewardship and Its Relevance to Christian Parenting
Christian stewards accept that everything they own belongs to God (Psalm 24:1), because everything they have was given to them by God (1 Corinthians 4:7). Parents who see themselves as stewards consider parental influence part of stewardship. Whatever platform of influence Christians have is a gift from God, consequently children are the first recipients of their Christian parents’ influence.
