Taking: Thinking and Acting Like an Owner

January 15, 2017

Emily Vermilya - Luke 19:11-27. "In most of us, there is a strong connection between our concept of God and our level of generosity. This sermon will explore that connection in the contrast between the mindset of a consumer (“I kept it laid away”) and a steward (“You have been trustworthy in very small matters”), and show how our concept of God (“I was afraid of you . . . Sir, here is your talent”) directly affects what we think of ourselves and our possessions. It will call us to think and act like an owner of our possessions so that we can be held accountable for them."
