”More0ver it is required in stewards, that a man be found faithful." (1 Corinthians 4:2)
A. Moreover — This means above everything else.
The Living Bible says "Now the most important thing". " The Amplified Bible says ”...It is essentially reguired". "

C. Stewards - This means a redistributor, agent, or treasurer.
D. Found Faithful- This speaks of a time when the faithfulness of the steward is examined to see what the quality of it is.
E. (Matthew 24:45-47) "Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his lord hath made ruler over his household, to give them meat in due season? Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing. Verily I say unto you, That he shall make him ruler over all his goods. "
