A Deadly Case of Affluenza

February 9, 2020 Speaker: Joel Sutton Series: Living With the Benjamins

Scripture: Luke 12:13–21

Affluenza:  Deadly disease of greed.

Two Mistakes:  

  • We think we are not like this guy.  
  • We want to be like this guy. 

Jesus warns us: Don’t be like this guy. 

  • A fool because of his self-centered attitude towards his money.
  • A fool because of his neglect of God (and others.)

How do you overcome this deadly disease?

  • Be rich towards God (and others).

Take Home Idea:   Generosity towards God and others will help guard against greed.
