Put God First
Spirit of Mammon (1 of 4)
Sun 12 Aug 2012 AM « Back to Top
The number of times Jesus talked about wealth and possessions, stewardship and
accountability, far exceeded any discussion on any topic. In fact there's about 10 times
the number of references to finances and stewardship and resources, than there are to
faith and salvation, and yet all of these go together. Often the moment we start to talk
about money, people freeze - and we will see why...
I want you to open your Bible with me in Matthew,
Chapter 6. I want to speak today on the Spirit of
Mammon. This will be interesting for some of us, won't
While we're doing that I'll just open my wallet and take
out some money. There we go. Look at that, and I've got
$20.00 there, so why don't I just take this $20.00 here,
and already it'll be talking to you - because money talks.
Money talks. It has a spirit behind it, as we'll see shortly.
