Godliness with Contentment is Great Gain

Jesus warned us “Take care, and be on your guard against all covetousness, for one’s life does not consist in the abundance of his possessions” (Luke 12:15). Covetousness is a sin of the heart that manifests itself in several ways. It cannot be hid from God “For the LORD searches all hearts and understands all the intent of the thoughts” (1 Chron. 28:9). Praise God that He has provided a way to escape and the grace to enable us to be content. The main points for the sermon (below) based on Exodus 20:17 are as follows:

  1. Discontented in a discontented world
  2. The antidote: The love of Christ
  3. Called to walk by faith in God’s providential care
