will give spiritual life to thousands of nominal professors of the truth who now mourn over their darkness. It will transform them from selfish, covetous worshipers of mammon, to earnest, faithful coworkers with Christ in the salvation of sinners.—Testimonies for the Church 3:387.

In the Master's Stead

A steward identifies himself with his master. He accepts the responsibilities of a steward, and he must act in his master's stead, doing as his master would do were he presiding. His master's interests become his. The position of a steward is one of dignity, because his master trusts him. If in any wise he acts selfishly, and turns the advantages gained by trading with his lord's goods to his own advantage, he has perverted the trust reposed in him.—Testimonies for the Church 9:246.

A selfish use of riches proves one unfaithful to God, and unfits the steward of means for the higher trust of heaven.—Testimonies for the Church 6:391.
