"As each one has received a gift, use it to serve one another
as good stewards of God's varied grace." (1 Peter 4:10)
A Christian Steward is "one who receives God's gifts gratefully, cherishes and tends them in a responsible and accountable manner, shares them in justice and love with others and returns them with increase to the Lord. Each member of the Church shares in responsibility for its mission; each is called to practice Stewardship of the Church. Christians are also called to look outward and to place themselves at the service of the entire human community, especially those who are most in need."
