As he confronts the divisions among the people of Corinth, St. Paul reminds us that we are stewards of the mysteries of God. Our labor and service belong to the Lord, who will judge our efforts on the unique circumstances of our lives.
St. Peter’s words “we have given up everything and followed you” can inspire us to consider how we offer our lives for the Lord. Recognizing that everything we have comes from God, we begin to see ourselves as stewards, not owners, who offer our lives for the glory of the one who made us.
St. Paul writes to the people of Corinth that we are servants and stewards. As we care for one another and use the resources we have received, we recognize that one day we will all stand before the Lord for judgment.
