The Federal Office of Management and Budget defines a budget as follows The budget system the United States government provides the means for the president and Congress to decide how much money to spend what to spend it on and how to raise the money that they have decided to spend through the budget system they determine the allocation of resources among the agencies of the federal government the budget system focuses primarily on dollars. But it also allocates other resources such as federal employment the definition of budget at the federal level can carry us over to state and local level covers levels of government as well public budgeting as required to ensure accountability and prioritization of government resources accountability to ensure the public is not taxed any more than required for appropriate government functions and prioritization to ensure the public functions to which scarce resources should be allocated most budget approaches are managerial in nature requiring rational decision making processes in Mere Christianity c.s.
Lewis stated every faculty you have your power of thinking or of moving your limbs from movement to movement is given you by God if you devote every moment of your whole life exclusively to his service. You could not give him anything that was not in a sense his own already in the New Testament to Greek word somebody the meaning of the English word a store chip eppy Tropfest meaning manager Foreman are stored in Okinawa most meaning stored in manager administrator from the public administration standpoint at the top most means being a governor at the trough posts or 1st mostly to the law or management of a household or of household affairs more often than not we discuss the concept of store chip when we discuss the concept of store chip we often refer to this within the context of our finances and our faithfulness in paying God’s Thyssen offerings
However it’s more than that stretches our b.d. a witness to God’s sovereignty search of defiance or a p.d.s. in the administration of everything under our control it means that as Stuart’s of God We are managers of what belongs to God in faithful stewardship we must recognize that we are not of our oil but we belong to God stewardship is the commitment of everything that one owns and those possessions that belong to God we are all stewards of the resources abilities and opportunities that the Lord has entrusted to each of us as public administrators we have a duty to not only the people but our responsibility to God to ensure the public’s resources are used wisely and not wasted in the parable of the unjust or should manager Luke Chapter 16 versus one through 13 unjust steward saw the resources of his master as those to be used for his own personal enjoyment and advancement Jesus however wants us followers to be just we need to understand that everything is a gift from God and realize that everything that concept God owns We are his store its I would like to share with you the parable of the talents from Matthew 25 verses 1430. For o.b. like a man going on a journey who called his servants and entrusted to them his property to one he gave 5 talents to another 2 to another one to each according to his ability many want a way he would receive the 5 talents when it wants in trade with them and he made 5 talents more so also he who had the 2 talents made 2 talents more but he who had received the one talent went and dug in the ground and hid his master’s money now after a long time the master of those servants came and settled their accounts with it he who had the 5 talents came forward bringing 5 talents more saying Master you deliver to me 5 talents here I have made 5 talents more his master said to him Well done good and faithful servant you have been faithful over a little I will set you over much enter into the joy of your master and he also had the 2 talents come forward saying Master you delivered me to 2 talents here I have made 2 talents more his master said to him Well done good and faithful servant you have been faithful over a little I will set you over much enter into the choice of your master. He who had also received the one talent came forward saying Master I knew to be a hard man reaping where you did not sell and gathering where your scout scattered no seed so I was afraid they went and hid your talent in the ground here you have what is yours but his master answered him you wiggle wicked and so awful servant you knew that I require I have not sown and gather where I have not scattered seeds then you ought to have invested my money with the bankers and at my coming I should have received what was mine with interest so take the talent from him and give it to him who has the 10 talents for to everyone who has will more be given and he who will have in abundance but from the one who has not even that he will not be taken away and cast the worthlessness servant into the outer darkness in the teeth place where we will be weeping and gnashing of teeth I leave you with the following question for the week Are you in total ability and stick on.
