What is your ambition for your life?

Watch out! Be on your guard against all kinds of greed!

A tragic story of a man blinded by greed

  • Self-centredness
  • Proud thanklessness
  • Self-indulgence

The twist in the tale – ‘You fool’

Being rich towards God

  • Trusting Jesus for Eternal Riches (Eph 1:7, 1 Peter 1:3-4)
  • Serving Jesus with our Whole Lives

Wisdom for guarding against greed

  • Don’t hoard selfishly but give generously.
  • Don’t be presumptuous but thankful (1 Tim 4:4).
