THE EARTH IS THE LORD'S - The Midas Trap and How to Avoid it

#1 - WHY SOME CHRISTIANS FIND GOD TO BE MORE SATISFYING THAN DO OTHERS

Speaker
Rev. Don Horban
Scripture
Psalm 73:23-28; Matthew 13:44; Philippians 3:7
#1 In The Series "THE EARTH IS THE LORD'S - The Midas Trap and How to Avoid it"


It's been a very long time since I've done any extensive teaching on the subject of Christian stewardship. I suppose there's a kind of pride that can creep up on a church that, unlike many churches today, we don't talk a lot about money and giving. It's usually something like, Thank you for your faithful support, and the ushers come down the aisle. 


But maybe we shouldn't gloat. Maybe it's not a good sign when Jesus talked about money more than heaven itself and a church doesn't - except for World Impact Sundays - talk about it very much. Maybe that puts us a bit out of sync with our Lord. 


I'm sure this is not a favorite topic among attendees. That in itself, I suppose, only shows how lovingly we're tied to the notion that our wealth is our wealth and isn't anyone else's business. We'd rather have less sensitive areas of our lives probed by the Lordship of Jesus.
