SERMON SERIES: GOOD WITH MONEY
We all have mixed reactions to the word “money”--everything ranging from enthusiasm to frustration. When it comes to money, usually we have less than we’d like--and often we have less than we feel like we need.
We associate money with blessing, and yet we all know money can also be a curse. In this series, we’ll look at some key truths about money that God shares with us in Scripture. As we do, we’ll learn how not to be cursed by our cash, no matter how much--or how little--we have.
PART 1: THE OBJECT OF MY AFFECTION
Whether money is a blessing or a curse for you comes down to one profoundly important question. In this message, we'll explore what that question is, and how to (accurately) answer it.

PART 2: WHAT DO YOU EXPECT?
We look to money for a lot of things: security, status, purpose. But there’s a problem with that: those are things only God can provide. Want to stop loving your money? Stop expecting so much from it.
Text: 1 Timothy 6:17-19

PART 3: ENOUGH IS ENOUGH
One of our greatest struggles with money and stuff is a constant thirst for more. It shackles us and keeps money squarely in the “curse” category for us. The solution, although difficult to pursue, is straightforward and entirely achievable: contentment. In this message, we’ll explore the nature of contentment and some practical ways to cultivate it in our lives.

PART 4: RETURN ON INVESTMENT
God loves giving money to those who spend it wisely. But what does that mean? In this message, we’ll examine a story Jesus told to those who were tempted to love money--and we’ll find out what wisdom in the area of our finances looks like.
