Sermon: Wisdom, Vision, and Finance

cover1“Wisdom, Vision, and Finance”

(November 8, 2009) In this sermon, we take a more practical look at some of the ways to curb our prodigal nature (our wasting and spending). But for any of these practical things to matter, we need to first know what our vision is. Like the prodigal child, when we have no sense of who we want to be, we wander aimlessly. When we have a vision– a vision for ourselves, for our communities, for our churches and organizations– then we can begin to make wise decisions, using all of the tools at our disposal, including the monetary tools, to achieve our life’s purpose. (Luke 15:11-32)

Part two in a series addressing faith and finances, based upon the study and program series “Enough: Discovering Joy Through Simplicity and Generosity” by Adam Hamilton. Statistics, quotes, and general outlines are taken from that work and used with permission. I of course add my own interpretation. Sermon titles include: “When Dreams Become Nightmares,” “Wisdom, Vision, and Finance,” “Cultivating Contentment,” and “Defined by Generosity.”
