Many preachers have taught on stewardship in reference to our money and our time, but both money and time are temporary commodities of this earthly life. Jesus used the parables about stewardship in the Gospels of Matthew and Luke to teach about the Kingdom of God. Parables are used to liken something people could understand to something that they may not have understood in any other teaching. Likewise, when Jesus taught about the sower and the seed, He did not intend for believers to become better farmers or gardeners. Since believers do not use the parable of the sower and the seed to learn about gardening, why is it that they use the parables of the talents and the pounds to teach that stewardship is referring to actual money or time? The word that is translated into the English word "mystery" or "mysteries" comes from the Greek word mystērion. An amazing twenty-seven times the writers of the New Testament use this Greek word. As Paul was writing to the Church of Corinth, he told them, "Let a man so account of us, as of the ministers of Christ, and stewards of the mysteries of God" (1 Corinthians 4:1). There is something of much more value than both money and time that God has placed into the hands of the church to take care of until He returns! This book was written so the believer can discover what God expects in us as His STEWARDS of the Mysteries of God!
