What Did Jesus Say About Things?

Series: But What Did Jesus Say About It?

Stuart Briscoe

We all are looking for financial and material success. Who wouldn't want a bigger house, nicer car, maybe a boat or some extra zeros in the bank account. All these things in themselves aren't bad—yet they become "bad" when we look for satisfaction in these material things or when we start to think that we deserve them.

Jesus warned against such greed when He told the parable of the rich fool—a man who saw his success as the result of his own actions instead of acknowledging that it was a gift from God. 

In this message, Stuart Briscoe teaches us what Jesus had to say about the amassing of wealth and encourages us to keep sight of the eternal and not the temporal.

Scripture: Luke 12:13 - 12:21
