Contemporary Idols: Money


Text:  2 Corinthians 8:9

Date:  October 14, 2012


It is easy to fall into the trap of believing that money can be the answer to all of life’s difficulties.  We believe that if we acquire enough money, we can satisfy our desires for influence, pleasures, and security.

In 2 Corinthians 8, the Bible alludes to a group of Christian in Macedonia who did not consider the acquisition of wealth their primary purpose in life.  Instead, they found joy in sharing what God had given them in order to see God’s Kingdom plan advance.
