Orthodox Stewardship Part 3: Sacred Offering

Orthodox Stewardship Part 3: Sacred Offering

Two weeks ago we began with an intro that discussed the paradigm shift of viewing your giving as a Sacred Offering.  What does it mean to give an offering?  When we give an offering we give it without expecting anything in return, we give not out of obligation and we give with thanksgiving. Our giving can be seen as a cycle in which God creates all things and gives them as gifts to his stewards, who in thanksgiving for receiving his gifts returns the first and finest as a sacred offering.
