1 But speak thou the things which become sound doctrine:

3 The aged women likewise, that they be in behavior as becometh holiness, not false accusers, not given to much wine, teachers of good things;
4 That they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children,
5 To be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed.
6 Young men likewise exhort to be sober minded.
7 In all things shewing thyself a pattern of good works: in doctrine shewing uncorruptness, gravity, sincerity,

MFM Devotional For Today 2022 MESSAGE:
Dearly beloved, I want you to honestly identify any of the qualities of a good and faithful steward that we have discussed, which is lacking in your life. I encourage you to go before the Lord in prayer and receive that quality from Him. Today, we will look at some more qualities or defining characteristics of a good and faithful steward.

Living a divinely controlled life is another important characteristic of a faithful steward. A steward that has self-control will obey the Master and be useful to Him. Self-control is one of the components of the fruit of the Holy Spirit. It is also a mark of Christian maturity. Apostle Paul admonished believers several times in his letter to Titus that they should live a controlled life (Titus 1:8, 2:2 and 2:5-6). Similarly, in Proverbs 25:28, the Bible says, “He that hath no rule over his own spirit is like a city that is broken down, and without walls.” People who lack self-control cannot control their temper, appetite, emotion, tongue, sex drive and spending. Such persons cannot be good and faithful stewards. On the other hand, a good and faithful steward will, like Paul, restrain his natural impulses and keep his fleshly desires under control. Due to lack of this quality, many people are not able to overcome the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life (1 John 2:16).
In addition to the above, another characteristic of a good and faithful servant is a sacrifice. In Romans 12:1, Apostle Paul called it a “living sacrifice”. In Luke 9:23, Jesus paints a picture of how a steward can become a living sacrifice. He said, “Let him deny himself, take up the cross daily and follow me.” Jesus wants you to daily kill your wishes, desires, agenda, comforts, free time and hopes for the greater good of the Kingdom and the world you seek to win. Beloved, you must imitate God if you desire to be a good and faithful steward. God sacrificially gave His best to sinful mankind though they did not deserve the gift. In the same manner, you should be willing to sacrificially give to others what God has entrusted to you without considering whether the people deserve it or not.
- Father, give me the grace to live a life of discipline and self-control that is becoming of a good steward, in the name of Jesus.
- Father, make me a lover and doer of Your word, the Steward’s Manual, in the name of Jesus.
- Father, make me a prayer addict and let my fellowship with You grow deeper, in the name of Jesus.
- Any idol in my life, die now, in the name of Jesus.
- Father, make me a channel of Your blessings and resources, in the name of Jesus.
- O God, make me your ambassador, shedding your love abroad everywhere I go, in the name of Jesus.
- O God, arise and anoint me with the wisdom to succeed as your steward, in the name of Jesus.
