Title: Higher Ground: Biblical Contentment
Text: John 10:10
Introduction: What is your dream life? Picture it now. What does it involve? Go over it in your mind. What does it look like? Does it involve a dream house? Vacation home? Does it involve wealth? A place on the water, a large bank account? Does it involve a change of jobs and popularity? Here is where I burst your bubble—that life you may have pictured is not what God intended when He spoke of abundant life in our text.
1. Ask God for Contentment
2. Practice the Principle of Moderation
3. Remember the Need for Liberality
4. Remember God's Gift of Enjoyment
5. Live Your Life with an Eternal Perspective
Conclusion: How I use money is a test of my heart toward God.
