Being Stewards in Life

Natalya Mihailova | 11 March 2014

A story of St. Nicholas Velimirovich tells us the difference between doing something good and doing it in Jesus’ Name. One day the Bishop met an old peasant woman at a tiny railroad station in Matchva. He asked, “Whom are you waiting for, sister?” “Whomever the Lord sends me,” she answered. It turns out that this woman came every day to the station in order to see if some poor traveler might need food or shelter. If someone showed up, she would joyfully accept him into her house. When the Bishop tried to praise her gospel-like hospitality, the woman sighed and saying, “Aren’t we His daily guests throughout all our life?”.

Since you are here…

…we do have a small request. More and more people visit Orthodoxy and the World website. However, resources for editorial are scarce. In comparison to some mass media, we do not make paid subscription. It is our deepest belief that preaching Christ for money is wrong.

Having said that, Pravmir provides daily articles from an autonomous news service, weekly wall newspaper for churches, lectorium, photos, videos, hosting and servers. Editors and translators work together towards one goal: to make our four websites possible -,, and Therefore our request for help is understandable.

For example, 5 euros a month is it a lot or little? A cup of coffee? It is not that much for a family budget, but it is a significant amount for Pravmir.

If everyone reading Pravmir could donate 5 euros a month, they would contribute greatly to our ability to spread the word of Christ, Orthodoxy, life's purpose, family and society.
