If you have ever longed for a little more simplicity and clarity in your life, please join me in worship these next four weeks for a sermon series titled “3 Simple Rules for Good Living”.
When encountering someone who is wound up tight in a bundle of urgent, unmet expectations and an overcomplicated view of life, I’ve often thought to myself, “Simple is good.” By simple I do not mean of poor quality. In fact, I find that items of the highest quality are very simple. I am convinced that the good life God created us for in Genesis and redeemed us for through Christ is simple and of the highest quality!
John Wesley spent his life immersed in the Bible while on a mission to help people find wholeness and freedom in Jesus Christ. While working with the poor and the rich and everyone in between, he learned 3 simple rules for personal finances that also lead to good living, “Earn all you can. Save all you can. Give all you can.”
During week one of the sermon series I will make the point that what we really need for good living is the gift of wisdom from God. The three following weeks we will talk about how to “Earn all you can, Save all you can, and Give all you can” to live well while exemplifying for the world the generosity and love of God.
In these complex and confusing times when things seem a bit blurry, come find some clarity and simplicity in the wisdom of the Bible and our Christian life!
