You're Not the Boss of Me - Part 4: "Undercover Boss"

Series: You're Not the Boss of Me

Greed is the master of disguise. It's so deceptive that you might not notice it, even when it's bossing you around. And once it does, this boss will never be satisfied. It always demands more. There's only one way to tell greed, "You're not the boss of me!" It's through proactive generosity. We all think we're generous in our hearts. Greed will be your boss until you're generous with your wealth.

Ecclesiastes 5:10  

Whoever loves money never has money enough; whoever loves wealth is never satisfied with his income.



1 John 3:17-18

If anyone has material possessions and sees a brother or sister in need but has no pity on them, how can the love of God be in that person?  Dear children, let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth.



John 3:16

For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. 



Luke 12:15  

“Watch out! Be on your guard against all kinds of greed; life does not consist in an abundance of possessions.”
