I would have said money management, but I suppose there is so much more than that that ‘stewardship’ entails. Being the unofficial No.1 attribute I want to nurture in myself, I find myself (and I should think that closer friends find that too) lacking the most in this area.
So here goes:
Money/finances – my track record isn’t pretty, and sad to admit I am the kind of person who drains her spending account to single digit amounts before getting the next month’s allowance. So imagine being entrusted with the rest of the expenses for the rest of my studies here in Perth – it’s not a pretty picture at this point in time. With rent being a constant burden, there is a very urgent need to manage my money much more than what I am doing at this point in time.
Time – I suppose spending weeks rotting at home isn’t a good way of spending time, or even just to watch TV from the moment I am awake till bedtime. I’ve improved in this matter, but definitely, time could be put to better use than playing Insaniquarium on the computer.
Health – I know and I know and I know. Exercise and healthy eating. Both needed to keep yourself healthy and all. And of which I might be fairing satisfactorily in the healthy eating part (given no fried chicken cravings and Oreos snacking) but I’m failing in the exercise part. Again.
It’s not that stewardship is a model answer. It is because these are things that are entrusted to me, from God and in the case of finances, parents, and kind people who gave me study loans, and deserves better stewardship than what it’s getting now. That’s what I need to work on – being faithful with what I have, and not taking for granted the things that seem to come free (good health and 24 hours a day).
I will be working on it as a long-term project though, given procrastination (oops) and just the magnitude of it. But please be patient with me, God is not done with me yet.
Yes, I am very clearly not ready for marriage. Lol. But I am rather excited to writing about the Top 3 attributes I’m looking for in a guy next week. :D
