Stewardship is being in charge of something that belongs to someone else.  It implies an accountability to the true owner for what we do with what we are in charge of.  Jesus taught in many parables that we are responsible to God for our use of what we are in charge of.  He also taught that we owe the owner (i.e. God) a return on what has been assigned to us.  Examples of things that we may be in charge of -- perhaps temporarily -- include:

our material resources,
our children,
our portions of business, church, or other organizations, etc.
