No New Riches
Oct 20, 2019 • Allen Coleman • Ecclesiastes: Nothing New Under The Sun
The church has a long history of unhelpful discussion about money. When we focus too much on practicality, prosperity, or poverty theology, we miss the core of what the Bible teaches about money. Money itself is an amoral resource to be stewarded, but the love of money causes many unnecessary pains. The world tells us that we aren’t happy because of what we don’t have, but Scripture commends to us an alternative: to work hard for God’s glory at something in which we find joy and purpose, and to enjoy the fruits of our labor in light of God’s love and guidance.
