Sermon: “The Poor are Rich”
Theme: Our real source of joy, happiness, and peace are not found in material possessions but in the fullness of loving relationships through Christ.
Purpose: The congregation will reflect upon their own values and concerns.
Scriptures: Job 23:1-17 Job complains that he cannot find God and feels alone.
Mark 10:17-31 A rich man asks Jesus how to inherit the kingdom and is saddened by Jesus’ answer.
What does it mean for us to be truly rich in the blessings of God? What is the wealth we know through gratitude, and through our relationship with Christ? What possessions or priorities keep us from enjoying the peace of God’s love and care for us? How do we separate ourselves from God through worrying about things that do not matter? How is it that we become obsessed with our problems and possessions rather than enjoying the gifts of God that surround us?
