The Rich Fool
We live in a world where we think our possessions are our life and our life is our possessions. In this parable we are reminded that having riches is not the problem. Moreover, the misunderstanding of why we have what we have is where our greed begins. Chad reminds us that we aren’t just #blessed, we are #blessedtobeablessing. So the question is: are you going to be separated from your stuff because of your death or your generosity?
Sermon text: Luke 12:13-21
Scriptures referenced: Luke 12:24, Psalm 36:5-6, Luke 12:33a, Luke 12:33-34
As Seen In Worship:
We believe in one God,
the Father, the Almighty,
maker of heaven and earth,
of all that is, seen and unseen.
We believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ,
the only Son of God,
eternally begotten of the Father,
God from God, Light from Light,
true God from true God,
begotten, not made,
of one Being with the Father.
Through him all things were made.
For us and for our salvation
he came down from heaven:
by the power of the Holy Spirit
he became incarnate from the Virgin Mary,
and was made man.
For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate;
he suffered death and was buried.
On the third day he rose again
in accordance with the Scriptures;
he ascended into heaven
and is seated at the right hand of the Father.
He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead,
and his kingdom will have no end.
We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life,
who proceeds from the Father and the Son.
With the Father and the Son he is worshiped and glorified.
He has spoken through the Prophets.
We believe in one holy universal and apostolic Church.
We acknowledge one baptism for the forgiveness of sins.
We look for the resurrection of the dead,
and the life of the world to come.
A Life Rich Toward God:
1. Recognize Your Value as Children of God (Luke 12:24, Psalm 36:5-6)
2. Recognize the Value of Others (Luke 12:33a)
3. Recognize the Value of the Kingdom (Luke 12:33-34)
Worship Christ today as the One who brought the Kingdom
of Heaven to earth. He has promised that if His Kingdom and
His righteousness are what we seek, He will be enough.
