What is stewardship?

Luke 16:1 He (Jesus) also said to His disciples: "There was a certain rich man who had a steward, and an accusation was brought to him that this man was wasting his goods. 2  "So he called him and said to him, ‘What is this I hear about you? Give an account of your stewardship, for you can no longer be steward.’ 3  "Then the steward said within himself, ‘What shall I do? For my master is taking the stewardship away from me. I cannot dig; I am ashamed to beg. 4  ‘I have resolved what to do, that when I am put out of the stewardship, they may receive me into their houses.’
