Don’t Hide Behind “Good Stewardship”

There was a certain businessman who came to the Dream Center who was considering if he should help build the Dream Center during our expansion of the floors of our hospital. We showed him around and at the end of the tour he said, “I cannot support your growth plan because you can’t financially maintain this growth during a recession.” He walked away and today we have built those floors and have more than maintained the biggest expansion of social services in our history, in the middle of the recession.


Many times, Christians will use terms like, “Being a good steward” or “There’s a better time for progress” as an excuse to conform to the logic of the world. Frankly, I’m tired of the business culture creeping into the church wherein everything has to make sense. Not everything has to make sense if we clearly obey the Bible. I know for a fact that progress is the key to provision. We either are growing or dying. I know a lot of people might disagree with this post using the word responsible, careful, etc. My main point of this blog is to question the Christian culture of holding back in hard times. It’s starting to look a lot like the corporate banking world sitting on loans, saving their profits, at the expense of logical thinking. In the process, a lot of people get hurt.
