Therapy for the Absurd: Wealth

September 16, 2018 |

Scripture: Ecclesiastes 5:8-20 | Series:

The Teacher has already ruled out wealth as a viable purpose for living; it’s too fleeting, too unreliable and utterly incapable of dealing with the specter of death looming over us all. But what about the relative value of wealth, not as a reason for being, but a temporary therapeutic salve for the various pains of being alive?  As long as we understand the unjust system in which wealth exists and deny its power to give us make us whole, the answer is ‘yes.” But in Christ the answer is even better - it’s a world restoring celebration in a redeemed community that establishes a new system, a new freedom and a new joy.
