14 Bible Verses On How To Be A Good Steward In The Kingdom Of God

In the kingdom of God, it is important to understand how we can be good stewards of the responsibility that God has entrusted into our hands.

The Bible says in Colossians 3:23 whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not of men.

A steward must be found trustworthy in the things that are given to him to do in the household of God. He must not be arrogant, violent, or greedy for gain but a lover of good, hospitable, self-controlled, upright, holy, and disciplined.

When a steward has these qualities in him, he will be able to hold firm the truth of the word of God entrusted to him and give sound doctrine.
