Pew Leaflet Sunday 31 July 2016

Most Bibles call it the "Parable of the Rich Fool". What makes the man in the parable foolish is not his wealth, but his desire to hoard his wealth. It is easy to say the words of faith, to sing the songs of faith, and to attend the gatherings of a community of faith. But, it’s our actions and our values that reveal what we really believe. When we allow our desire for wealth or comfort to undermine our relationships, we contradict our faith in Jesus. When we seek pleasure, possessions or power for our own sakes, we get out of step with the mission and message of Jesus. But, as the call of Jesus takes hold of us, we slowly but surely start to see a shift in our priorities, we begin to embrace the sacrifice, simplicity and service of following Jesus, and we discover that abundant life is found not in the size of our bank accounts, but in the size of our hearts. (Sacredise)
