  • God Gives Us His Words of Eternal LifeLuke 12:13-21

    Found on page 871 in our guest Bibles.

    Todays Scripture:

  • a painful, contagious, socially

    transmitted condition of overload, debt, anxiety, and waste resulting from the dogged pursuit of

    more.

  • No matter what we breed We still are made of greed

    This is my kingdom come This is my kingdom come

  • Is it possible that our lives

    are defined by the dogged

    pursuit of more?

  • Someone in the crowd said to him,

    Luke 12:13-14

    Teacher, tell my brother to dividethe inheritance with me. But he said to him, Man, who made me ajudge or arbitrator over you?

  • And he said to them, Take care,

    Luke 12:15

    and be on your guard against allcovetousness, for ones life does not consist in the abundance of possessions.

  • And he said to them, Take care,

  • I must continually guard myself against greed because I am prone to thinking that life consists in the abundance of

    possessions.

  • And he told them a parable, saying,

    Luke 12:16-17

    The land of a rich man produced plentifully, and he thought to himself,What shall I do, for I have nowhereto store my crops?

  • He was thankless#1

  • Beware lest you say in your heart, My power

    and the might of my hand have gotten me this wealth. You shall

    remember the Lord your God, for it is he who

    gives you the power to get wealth.!

    ~ The Prophet Moses in !Deuteronomy 8:17!

  • He has a mistaken view of wealth

    #2

  • He has no room in

    his thoughts for God

    #3

  • Take care lest you forget the Lord your God.lest when you have eaten and are full

    and have built good houses and live in them, and whenyour silver and gold is

    multiplied and all that you have is multiplied, then your heart will be lifted up, and you

    forget the Lord your God.!

    ~ The Prophet Moses in Deuteronomy 8:11-14!

  • And he said, I will do this: I will tear

    Luke 12:18-19

    down my barns and build bigger ones, and there I will store all my grains and my goods. And I will sayto my soul, Soul, you have amplegoods laid up for many years; relax,eat, drink, be merry.

  • But God said to him, Fool! This

    Luke 12:20-21

    night your soul is required of you, and the things you have prepared,whose will they be? So is the onewho lays up treasure for himselfand is not rich toward God.

  • Life does not consist in the abundance of things, but in the richness of a life

    that is centred on God.

    Main Idea

  • Choose whom you will serve1

  • You worship money. Youre part

    of a culture where everything is

    measured by money. Its a religion.

  • No servant can serve two masters, for either

    he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other.

    You cannot serve God and money.

    ~ Jesus of Nazareth in The Gospel of Luke 16:13

  • He who loves money will not be

    satisfied with money, nor he who loves wealth with his

    income. ~ King Solomon

    Ecclesiastes 5:10

  • Know that money is not evil, but it can be very dangerous.2

  • Those who desire to be rich fall into temptation, into a snare, into many

    senseless and harmful desires that plunge people into ruin and destruction. For the

    love of money is a root of all kinds of evils. It is through this craving that some have

    wandered away from the faith and pierced themselves with many pangs. !

    ~ The Apostle Paul in 2 Corinthians 4:4

  • Treasure your True Treasure3

  • You know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ,

    that though he was rich, yet for your sake he became poor, so

    that you by his poverty might become rich.

    ~ The Apostle Paul in 2 Corinthians 8:9

  • When you see him dying to make you his treasure, that will make him yours. Money will cease to be the currency of your significance and security, and you !will want to bless others with what you have. To the degree you grasp the gospel, money !will have no dominion over you. !Think on his costly grace!how he poured out his !wealth for you

    ~ Tim Keller, Counterfeit Gods

  • Lord Jesus, enable me to see that my life does not consist of the abundance of

    things. In fact, my life is not my own, but Ive been bought with a pricethe price of

    your precious blood. As I learn to yield every square inch of my life to you, give me

    grace and power to be rich toward you.
