Description

The third sermon in our series; "Healthy Habits"

This week's scripture: Matthew 6:19-21

Imagine... having UNLIMITED resources. You could have everything you wanted. You could create your perfect paradise. No more worries about anything. It's all covered!

So here is the question - Where would you stop? How much would be enough?

I love food. Have you been to an all-you-can-est buffet? I love them. I go in hungry with a goal in mind. I can have anything and everything I want. No one to stop me except me. Mouthwatering, tastebuds singing, I get started. In about 20 minutes, I wish I didn't just do that.

The Apostle Paul wrote, "I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. I can do all this through him who gives me strength."

I think the key to understanding what Paul understands is knowing how to be ambitious for God. When we live for God, we find contentment in everything. To live for God, start at knowing Him. Take a deep breath and invite God into your day and life.
