Steward, Stewardship

A person who takes care of the affairs or property of another. That which a steward cares for is called a stewardship. All things on earth belong to the Lord; we are his stewards. We are accountable to the Lord, but we may report on our stewardship to God’s authorized representatives. When we receive a calling of service from the Lord or his authorized servants, that stewardship may include both spiritual and temporal affairs (D&C 29:34).

  • Thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things:Matt. 25:14–23;
  • Unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required:Luke 12:48; ( D&C 82:3; )
  • Jesus gave the parable of the unjust steward:Luke 16:1–8;
  • Whoso is found a faithful steward shall enter into the joy of his Lord:D&C 51:19;
  • Every man is to give an account of his stewardship:D&C 72:3–5;
  • He that is a faithful and wise steward shall inherit all things:D&C 78:22;
  • The Lord will make every man accountable as a steward over earthly blessings:D&C 104:11–17; ( D&C 42:32; )
  • Be diligent that thou mayest be a wise steward:D&C 136:27;
