What can wealth do TO you?

Posted by Dana Bicker on

Many don’t realize the impact that wealth can have on us. If money were a prescription drug, there’d be a long warning disclaimer with all the side effects. In this message, Pastor Steve Madsen helps us discover why the Bible talks about wealth and riches more than heaven or hell combined and the connection between generosity and contentment.

Opening Questions and Reading
  • Would you define yourself as rich? Why or why not?
  • Would you define yourself as blessed? Why or why not?
  • Read 1 Timothy 6:6-11 and 17-19.
