Jesus and Stuff: Week 1, Devo 3

Charles Spurgeon was one of the greatest preachers in modern times. Check out what he had to say about possessions:

Nothing influences a man so much as that which he calls his own.” – C. H. Spurgeon

 Think about these questions:

  • What does this quote mean to you?
  • Do you agree with it? Why or why not?
  • How does this quote make you rethink your attitude toward your possessions?

Now take a look at this verse:

No one can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and money. – Matthew 6:24

And try on these questions again:

  • What does this verse mean to you?
  • Do you agree with it? Why or why not?
  • Does this seem harsh? Why do you think Jesus said it?
  • How does this quote make you rethink your attitude toward your possessions?
