Sunday Morning Sermon — What Would You Do With $25,000

Darrell Vesterfelt

When Ally and I were first married, and really poor, we loved to dream about what we would do if we had money.

I think we have all been there before. As you drive down the expressway and see the amount of money you could win if you got the lucky Powerball ticket, you begin to dream about what you would do with the money if it were right in front of you.

Money can be a tricky thing. Jesus warns us of how the love of money can keep us from the kingdom of God, while at the same time we know that that money can be a powerful tool for good.

What If I told you that I would give you $25,000 right now. What would you do with it? Would you use it to buy a new mini cooper, or would you do what this guy did and try to help someone in need? How we use our money says a lot about us. This is meant to be a tool of guilt or shame, but rather a tool to help us align our hearts and our checkbooks. If they are out of sync, we may need to adjust.

Think about this today: How could you have agency in your life with the things you have been given; and partner with God to save many lives?
