"You will be enriched in every way so that you can always be generous. And when we take your gifts to those who need them, they will thank God." 2 Corinthians 9:11 (NLT)
Treasure management is another way of saying stewardship! Treasure management emphasizes the goal of Spirit-filled stewardship as the faithful management of ALL that God gives you so that God can use your giving to transform your heart and to extend His transforming love to others. Jesus put it this way: Where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. Jesus saw a connection between your money management and your relationship to God. Below, you will find ways that invite you to practice generous and faithful Treasure Management.
~ Dr. Michael L. Cash, Senior Pastor, Trinity on the Hill UMC
