Rev. Joe Chu - September 5, 2021

The Idolatry of Money

Pastor Joe Chu was our guest speaker and he recounted the story of Zacchaeus, focusing on the observation that once Zacchaeus decides to accept Jesus’ invitation, rather than asking Jesus how much of his wealth he should give away to make amends for his past actions, Zacchaeus is able to decide to give away half of his wealth. How many of us have wondered how to calculate how much to give in tithes and offerings in order to be “saved”? Rather than focusing on money and in the process, becoming a slave to it, we are invited to seek first God’s kingdom as God promises he will provide us all we need. Once we do that, decisions regarding making and spending money will fall into the right perspective.
