As Original Stewards
Stewardship and economics are indistinguishable for New Testament Christians, yet we often separate the two as “financial” and “other.” It is clear that from the very beginning, this distinction is a false one. Adam and Eve were commanded to fill, subdue, and rule the created order. The Bible is clear that good stewards neither squander their resources nor abuse their authority; while bad stewards are often labeled “wicked” and “lazy.” Perhaps an even better analogy is this: Adam’s dominion over creation was as a gardener to his field or a shepherd to his flock.

About the series
The Book of Genesis is the starting point of God’s covenant with His people. This book gives us the historical sketch of the creation, fall, and redemption of the world. Genesis is also a perfect litmus test to gauge whether or not a person fully trusts in the authority, sufficiency, and inerrancy of Scripture.
