  1. 1. Luke 12:13-15 Someone in the crowd said to Him, ‘Teacher, tell my brother to divide the inheritance with me.’ Jesus replied, ‘Man, who appointed Me a judge or an arbiter between you?’ Then He said to them, ‘Watch out! Be on your guard against all kinds of greed; a man’s life does not consist in the abundance of his possessions.’ www.networkbible.org
  2. 2. Luke 12:16-18 And He told them this parable, ‘The ground of a certain rich man produced a good crop. He thought to himself, ‘What shall I do? I have no place to store my crops.’ Then he said, ‘This is what I’ll do. I will tear down my barns and build bigger ones, and there I will store all my grain and my goods. www.networkbible.org
  3. 3. Luke 12:19-21 And I’ll say to myself, “You have plenty of good things laid up for many years. Take life easy; eat, drink and be merry”’ ‘But God said to him, ‘You fool! This very night your life will be demanded from you. Then who will get what you have prepared for yourself?’ This is how it will be with anyone who stores up things for himself but is not rich toward God.’ www.networkbible.org
  4. 4. Ironically, in our quest for MORE we have LESS… By saying ‘no’ to MANY things we are able to give our best to the RIGHT things. If you want to grow in godliness, there must be SPACE in your life for that which nourishes spiritual growth.
  5. 5. Simple living requires GUARDING against GREED Greed can slip into our lives in SUBTLE ways. Simple living is the choice to live for THEE, not ME. …all that we have is a GIFT from God to be USED in a way that honors God.
  6. 6. Today’s DISTRACTIONS easily grow into tomorrow’s IDOLS. Simple living is the choice to live on LESS to do MORE for God. Simple living is choosing increased IMPACT over bigger BARNS. Simple living enables spiritual growth by learning to say no to many things in order to say yes to a life lived RICHLY toward God.
