Sermon Notes:
There are approximately 30 parables in the Scriptures, 19 of which either speak directly of money or are told in an economic context. Jesus spoke more about money and generosity than any other subject besides the Kingdom of God. S.E. Lea and P. Webley, in their research study The Biological Psychology of a Strong Incentive, state that “money is a tool, but money is also a drug.” Money lets us pay the bills, keep the lights on, stay fed, and get work done because money is a tool. But money also acts like a drug. Money makes us feel things we would not otherwise feel. It gives us a temporary escape from pain, and it can also give us a momentary illusion of wellbeing.
