A steward is one who is commissioned to oversee and execute the affairs of another. The closer a steward is able to represent the mind of their superior, the better they fulfill their role. Therefore, when a steward is on assignment, ideally they have no personal will or agenda; they strive to have the mind and will of their supervisor.
Abraham’s unnamed senior servant was an excellent example of a faithful steward. His mindset was to represent Abraham’s will and interests as faithfully as possible.
We are stewards of the Lord Jesus Christ.
Our goal is to have His mind and will.
By looking at Abraham’s servant, we can gain insight into how to be a more faithful steward of God’s purposes.
