To Expand the WE
“WE can do all things through Christ who gives us strength.” Phil. 4:13
“You will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you. And you will be my witnesses, telling people about me everywhere—in Jerusalem, throughout Judea, in Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” Acts 1:8
WE are the Church, the body of Christ.
Enough: Finding Joy through
Simplicity and Generosity
Money has great power in our lives. Used wisely, it is one key to accomplishing our goals, providing for our needs, and fulfilling our life purpose. Without wisdom, credit card debt soars, savings rates plummet, and our home equity becomes something to be tapped into and spent rather than a source of security in retirement. At one time or another, we all have felt an insatiable desire for MORE. And we found ourselves spending tomorrow's money today in order to have what we hoped would satisfy. The result of all of this was not greater happiness and satisfaction, but greater stress and anxiety. That's why Jesus talked more about our money and stuff than any other single subject.
ENOUGH is an invitation to rediscover the Bible's wisdom when it comes to how we use and think about our resources. In the next few weeks, we will identify what Jesus tells us about the keys to experiencing contentment, overcoming fear, living meaningful lives, and discovering joy through simplicity and generosity. Jesus wants to change our relationship with money because, surprisingly, it is the one thing in our lives that continually gets in the way of our true happiness and God's purpose.
