Who should steward the world?
From within [a] Kingdom perspective on human worth and well-being emerges a solution to the major social problems of wealth and poverty. That solution consists in a new type of human being, people who have assimilated the character of Christ into all areas of life and society. These people clearly see that giving is only a part and by no means the largest part of stewardship before our Lord. These people understand it is part of their responsibility to control the world’s possessions in a way that ministers to all. The poor are much more to be benefited by the godly controlling the goods of this world than by their performing a pious handwashing that only abandons those goods to the servants of “mammon.”
