Fighting Materialism

Jesus looked at him and said,
"How hard it is for the rich to enter the kingdom of God!”
(Luke 18:24)

Here are some suggestions to fight against materialism:

  • Be ready to face up with our feelings about money: our fear, insecurity, guilt, pride or envy.

  • Stop denying our wealth; we are well blessed.

  • Confess our fears and temptations to one another.

  • Apply God promises to our financial situation.

  • Help one another to face the money problems.

  • Consider to help the poor and the needy.

  • Give with glad and generous hearts. Letting go of money destroys the sin of greed.

Let us commit ourselves to living a simple lifestyle and not give in to materialism.

Oh Lord, I want to follow You all the way. And I want to be obedient as You direct and instruct.
