Bible Text: Luke 12:13-31 |

Perhaps no area in life is more sensitive than our finances. We may be open about every other part of our life, but the moment someone questions us about our money or possessions, we become very defensive. Nonetheless some of Jesus’ most pertinent parables and teachings are about the stewardship of our possessions.

  • The curse of covetousness
    • Covetousness divides family and friends (Luke 12:13-15)
    • Covetousness brings worry and fear (Luke 12:15-17)
  • The conduct of covetousness
    • Wealth becomes an obsession
    • Wealth fills with pride (Luke 12:16-19)
  • The cure for covetousness
    • Put materialism into its place (Luke 12:22-23)
    • Develop a life of faith (Luke 12:28
    • Seek God's priorities (Luke 12:31)

“Nothing teaches us about the preciousness of the Creator as much as when we learn the emptiness of everything else.”
― Charles Spurgeon
