The gift of treasure comes in many forms, although Christians often equate treasure with tithing. Integral to the survival of any family, tithing helps us to maintain our facilities, pay our employees just salaries, and see to the overall and continuous improvements of the property (an ongoing process).
The challenge of Stewardship of Treasure is to embrace fully the sacrifice of giving. All Catholics should consider the Stewardship of Treasure in these terms:
Giving from your excess is a wonderful act of kindness.
Giving from your want is a generous of charity.
Giving from your need is a powerful act of faith.
