Studio 2 – Movie Mad Challenge.

Studio 2 had a short movie competition going. You had to make a 5 minute movie on 5+ a day Movie Mad Challenge.

The Hamilton boys (Home Educators from the Manawatu) entered (these are the boys who produced Romeo & Juliet last year – January 2008 Keystone Magazine has an article about it) and made it through to the final 3 families. They had hundreds of entrants from all across NZ.

You can watch their 5 minute movie on channel 2. It is either Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday at 4.30pm. They are screening 1 finalist each afternoon. Or you can go on-line to the TVNZ website and go to Studio 2,

It is a competition that requires votes. All your support for the boys would be really great.

You can go online and check out how to vote, or watch on studio2 and they will tell you how.

Keystone-April 2008: Shepherding Our Families as Trustees for God

Shepherding Our Families as Trustees for God

(Trustee Families)

by Craig Smith

There is a vision which, to the extent that this vision is thoroughly Biblical, we men must learn to see and then learn to embrace. Read on and see what you think.

We are trustees, put on this earth to look after and be stewards of everything God has created, and more specifically, those things which He has Providentially placed into our hands and under our roofs. Being a trustee is different from being a creator or an owner or an employee or a slave. Ultimate owners and all creators have total control over those things they totally own or totally created. All decisions they make, even when consulting only themselves, in regard to how these things they own or created are allowed to exist, utilised or destroyed – including human life – are perfectly valid and proper. Employees and slaves have only a minimum of responsibility toward those things in their care: their daily activities consist overwhelmingly in doing as they are told.

Being a trustee is different. We have a lot of responsibility, nearly total responsibility, over those things of which we are trustees or stewards. When the owner of these things returns, He will require of us an accounting as to how we looked after His goods. You’ve heard all this before. Re-read the parable of the ten pounds or ten minas in Luke 19:11-27.

Being trustees means we don’t ultimately own anything: not our properties, our families, our health: these are all rightly the property of Almighty God. He gives us both commands and guidelines as to how to steward these things, but He also leaves us in the dark as to much of their final disposition. However, the Lord does give us also the ultimate purposes for which we are to be stewarding all these things He delivers into our trustee care: to bring praise and glory to His Son, our Lord Jesus Christ (I Corinthians 10:31; Colossians 3:17), seeking first His Kingdom and His Righteousness (Matthew 6:33)……..
