, CHRISTIAN STEWARDSHIP
' International Sunday School Lesson
for December 14, 1M1
Gojden Text: "It is required
in stewards, that a man be found
faithful." I Cor. 4:2.
Lesson Texti II Cor. 8:1-9; 9:6-7.
When Christian people generally
come to a full realisation of the
meaning of stewardship and accept
its implications, patting its teachings
into practice in their own lives, the
Christian Church will show such an
advance that it will amaze even the 1
most optimistic. I
Just what is a steward? A glance
into a dictionary reveals that a
"steward is one who manages the af
fairs, or possessions, of another."
The steward is not the owner of the
possessions, he is the care-taker, re
sponsible to the real owner. This is
true of a ship's steward he does not
own. the ship nor even the materials
with which he works or for which he
is responsible. He must make an ac
counting to the owner, however, for
the manner in which he performs his
duties or cares 'for the possessions oT
When we speak of Christian stew
ardship, the idea is the same. We
acknowledge that God is the owner
of everything, by right of creation
and that He lets us hold and use what
is really His, for a time and that,
eventually, everything that we have,
or own, really goes back to the Heav
enly Father in some way.
The Psalmist declared, ''The earth
is the Lord's and the fullness thereof,
the world and they that dwell there
in." Time, which we may use or mis
use, was given to us by God. Our
talents and abilities, which if proper
ly developed may help us to attain
success in living, are given to us by
God. God is the source and owner
of all things and man is just a tenant
of His, allowed through God's good
ness and generosity to use and pos
sess what really belongs to Him.
Acknowledging the above to be
true, what return shall we make to t
God for the use of His possessions .' ,
If we rent an apartment, a store
building or a farm from another, we
naturally expect to pay rent, a cer
tain stipulated sum, for the use of
the property rented. Yet, when some
one be it preacher, Sunday School
teacher or worker mentions that one
should set aside a certain stipulated
sum out of one's earnings as holy
unto the Lord, most people hold up
their hands in horror and say that the
one tiling they don't like about the
church and its workers is their ever
lasting emphasis upon giving money.
They are not stewards or they would
not have that attitude.
However, tithing is only a small
part of Christian stewardship. Paul,
in writing to the Corinthians, praised
the Macedonian Christians for their
liberality and generosity in giving to
the unfortunate believers in Judea
and called attention to a very 'impor
tant factor, when he said that these
Christians, "first gave their own
selves to the Lord." When Chris-
tians dedicate "their own selves to
the Lord" there will be no question Pierce, Ned Nixon, Walter Umphlet,
about their generosity, their service J. L. DeLaney, E. U. Morgan, Ken
or their living. j neth Miller, Marvin White, A. R.

the jworld, of serving men and women
everywhere, of saving lost souls, is
through every' Christian man and
woman, boy and girl in every country
throughout the world. He wants
more than a small proportion of your
money. He wants part of your time,
your energy, your talent and your
God-given ability used for His and in
You may not have much money, but
there is always something you can
give to God or use for God. He
doesn't judge us by the size of our
gift, the greatness of our talent. His
only question of us is: "Did you do
your best?" Anything less than our
best is not a worthy gift to the God
who loves us so much that He gave
His only begotten Son, that whoso
ever believeth on Him should not
perish but have everlasting life.
What kind of a steward are you?

Produce More Eggs
When the cold winds of winter
blow, that's the time to think of the
comfort of the farm poultry flock,
says C. F. Parrish, poultryman of the
N. C. State College Extension Service.
A comfortable house, free from
drafts, will help to keep the birds
free fiom common winter ailments
and aid them in producing a maxi
mum number of eggs.
Then, too, each bird should have at
least 31-! to 4 square feet of floor
wuimi jiyauc auuuiu uk uruviueu ui
the number culled down to a point
where the birds may be comfortable
in present quarters.
Water that fhas been heated to
knock the chill off, or fresh from the
well early each morning, will do much
to prevent a cold snap from causing a
sharp drop in egg production. For
less trouble, automatic electric or oil
heated warmers should be installed.
In other suggestions for December
to North Carolina poultrymen, Par
rish said the feeding of one pound of
alfalfa leaf meal per 100 birds will be
a satisfactory substitute for green
feed if the dry fall prevented the
sowing of a grazing crop.
if the flock is properly housed and
cared for and not more than 80 to 40
eggs per 100 hens are received daily,
then there may be something wrong
with the health or breeding of the
birds, Parrish said.
to the kind of breeding males he
uses next year, or the sources from
which he purchases his baby chicks,
the State College specialist advised.
