Sermons about Wealth
We are not to pursue material things or financial gain to profit ourselves, but rather use our resources to gain spiritual wealth.

Wealth has always held great attraction for people. But we tend to downplay the dangers it brings, usually until it is too late. James, in addressing the misuse of wealth in this world, is calling God's people to the proper, godly use of wealth (and the power that often attends it).
As we embark on a brand new year, we may find ourselves pausing to consider what we want our lives to look like in 2017. In Ecclesiastes, King Solomon argues that this life never holds anything new and that everything is ultimately meaningless. Pastor Scott highlights three areas of life in which the author questioned his purpose as well as the key to real meaning in our lives today.
We continued our series on finances by looking at what Jesus says about how our view of wealth impacts our hearts and our pocketbooks. Gwen unpacked how we can see our finances in a way that bring light and not darkness into our hearts and how God rewards our faithfulness when we invest our wealth into things that are important to Him.
If you live here in the USA, whether you realize it or not, you are among the wealthiest people on planet earth. And understand this, God is the one who has given you this wealth.

Listen and be challenged to wisely use your wealth.
Luke 16 encourages us to view our resources from a heavenly perspective and use what we have to make an eternal impact.
