"Good stewards of the manifold grace of God"

[Original article in German]

As every man hath received the gift, even so minister the same one to another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God," we read in Peter's first epistle. And in the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 17), Mary Baker Eddy gives the spiritual interpretation of the fifth phrase in the Lord's Prayer, "Give us this day our daily bread," as, "Give us grace for to-day; feed the famished affections."

What care-free, fear-free activity there would be all over the world, if each one knew that his work consists in being a steward of "the manifold grace of God"! God's treasure house is inexhaustibly overflowing with the fruits of Spirit—"love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance." Every day we should abundantly rejoice in these fruits, and share them with our neighbor.
