What our hands do with our money shows what our hearts are doing with God. What money is to us reveals what God is to us. Jesus said, “A man’s life does not consist in the abundance of his possessions” (Luke 12:15). No, it consists in his relationship to God.
In these four sermons, John Piper calls us to forsake the ease, and comfort, and prosperity that this world offers, and to treasure the infinite riches of Christ. Key themes include: not fretting over finances, how to be happy in giving, embracing simplicity, sacrificing joyfully, and maximizing heavenly treasure. Each message echoes the hope-filled refrain: God can change your longing for earthly possessions by filling your heart with the wealth of the glory of Christ and freeing it from slavery to the vain glory of things.
