Title: Overcoming Controlling Consumerism
Speaker: Darryl J. Stalter
Scripture: Matthew 6:19-24
Our materialistic and consumerist culture shouts to us that the acquisition of goods and services in ever-increasing amounts provides security and satisfaction. The struggle and pull of materialism and consumerism is not something new. In fact, this was also a prevalent issue in the world and culture of Jesus day. In the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus attacks this head on. He believers to not be controlled by the rampant materialism and controlling consumerism of our day, but to be freed from its tendrils in order to be truly satisfied in God and His work.
