Fighting Greed in a Culture of More

Fighting Greed in a Culture of More

John Rockefeller was asked, “How much money does it take to satisfy a man?” He replied, “Just a little bit more.”

His answer was insightful—not only about how many people think about money, but about how they think about life in general. “If only I had better clothes, or a nicer house, or was more popular, or had better grades, then everything would be perfect.”

But more doesn’t always mean better. And it certainly doesn’t equate to faithfulness.

On January 21 at Westminster we had Part 3 in a series called “Keeping up with the Joneses: Why it ruins your joy, wrecks your priorities (and what to do about it).”

We probed the human tendency toward greed (even in normal, everyday ways), how it poisons your perspective, distorts reality, and undermines your awareness of God’s goodness and provision in your life.

We also talked about 1 practical thing you can do to realign your priorities.
The message is called “Fighting Greed in a Culture of More.” Enjoy!
