“Now God is God not of the dead,
but of the living; for to God
all of them are alive.”
A trick question from his adversaries gives Jesus the opportunity to affirm that everyone is alive to God. Our stewardship actions bring this affirmation to life, as we support and encourage a better life for all of God’s people.
