The Myth of More (My Message 11/22/09)

1. Having more will make me HAPPY. “Whoever loves money never has money enough; whoever loves wealth is never satisfied with his income…” Ecclesiastes 5:10

2. Having more will make me IMPORTANT. "Then he said to them, be on your guard against all kinds of greed; a man’s life does not consist in the abundance of his possessions.” Luke 12:15

3. Having more will make me SECURE. “The wealth of the rich is their fortified city; they imagine it an unscalable wall.” Proverbs 18:11

Exploding the Myth for More:

RESIST comparing what I have with others. 2 Corinthians 10:12

REJOICE in what I do have. 1 Thessalonians 5:18

RETURN the first ten percent back to God. Malachi 3:7, 10

RELY on God for my daily needs. Proverbs 30:8,9

REFOCUS my life of eternal things. 1 Timothy 6:17-19
