Message: "Breaking Free From Our Favorite Idol"
We have been taught that our security is in our things, so if a little gives me some security, then a lot will give me more. Far from having empty hands, we have clenched hands - tightly holding to what we have such that we become "hoarders." Perhaps not physically, but is that the sense of our hearts? Paul's words as he leaves the Ephesian elders give provide counsel to us in not coveting silver or gold, but working for life's necessities while living generously. Generosity is the greater blessing.
