New Testament Lesson: I Timothy 6:6-11, 17-19 (Love of money)
Gospel Lesson: Mark 10:17-27 (The rich young man)
When worldly wealth becomes our heart’s desire, it becomes an idol that can destroy our souls. Jesus tells us to seek first the kingdom of God, and all these things will be added as well. There is a reason God asks us to have no other gods before Him, because He is the only God who can save us from our sin – which He does through the redeeming work of Jesus.
