One of the great gifts of the stewardship lifestyle is the acute awareness that everything in life is a gift from God. This includes our relationships. Today’s first reading and Gospel focus on marriage in particular. God, in His infinite wisdom, knows that we need ‘helpers’, that we should not be alone in our faith journey. In marriage, and in the relationships we enjoy with our sisters and brothers in the Body of Christ, good stewardship is doing whatever we can to help each other get to Heaven!
