The Stewardship Ministries of the North American Division is looking for inspiring sermons that elaborate on good stewardship in all of its forms. We want to publish a book containing 12 exceptional sermons on stewardship. This will be the third book in the series, Beyond Blessings. This book series aims to provide pastors and lay leaders with materials and ideas to preach for the two Stewardship Sabbaths we recommend that you hold every year.  


We describe the various aspects of stewardship in terms of seven T’s; four are direct and the other three form the foundation for the direct T’s. Sermons could address any one or any combination of these subtopics. 

The Direct T’s:

  • T1-Time
    • Spiritual (Time with God): First make time for individual, personal worship, Bible study, and relationship building with God.
    • Practical (Time Management): Then it will be easier to organize time for family, the individual’s life, and planning for the future.
  • T2-Temple-Body
    • Spiritual: “Your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost” (1 Cor. 6:19, KJV). The individual is a temple of God; our bodies are compared to the Bible sanctuary—living temples.
    • Practical: To live our best life we need to care for our bodies using natural principles of health.
  • T3-Talent-Gifts from God.
    • Spiritual: God gives individuals gifts to do His work.
    • Practical: God gives individuals talents to have gainful employment.
    • T3.5-Terra: We place care of the planet (Terra firma-Mother Earth) under Talents since He gives us the skills to produce the items necessary for life out of the natural resources He has provided. He also has given humans gifts to take care for every aspect of the planet.

T4-(His) Treasure-

  • Spiritual: We express our relationship with God through the Tithes and Offerings.
  • Practical: We must handle our personal finances well through consistent wise money management and debt relief when needed.

The Foundational T’s:

  • T5-Trust in God: “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight” (Proverbs 3:5-6, NIV).
  • T6-Theology: We should always be reminding ourselves of our Biblical foundations and studying the stewardship lifestyle principles.
  • T7-Testimony: Verbalizing what God did, does, and will do strengthens us and others spiritually.Beyond Blessings Book

If you would like to be considered by Hope Channel, include a 30-60 second video of yourself summarizing your sermon when you upload your sermon.


Stewardship executed properly allows us to breathe. Trust God and seek His help daily. David implies this trust with, “…I’m leaping and singing in the circle of your love; you saw my pain, you disarmed my tormentors. You didn’t leave me in their clutches but gave me room to breathe” (Psalm 31:6-8, MSB).
