Food Convenient For Me

Outline by Brian A. Yeager

I. Introduction:

A. Having enough and what to do with it has long been a needed lesson (Deuteronomy 8:1-20).

1. The cares, riches, and pleasures of this life choke the word of God (Luke 8:14).

2. Getting “more” has been an oft traveled sinful road (James 5:1-5).

B. Carnal desires are dangerous (Galatians 5:16-17).

1. To avoid such dangers, we are to make no provisions for fleshly desires (Romans 13:13-14).

2. If we turn ourselves over to those desires, we are sure to bring our spiritual downfall about (Romans 8:12-13).

 

II. Body: The Danger Of Too Little And Too Much (Proverbs 30:8-9).

A. Poverty CAN be dangerous (Isaiah 8:20-22).

1. To some degree, men excuse thievery if one is suffering hunger (Proverbs 6:30-31).

a. God does not excuse a thief (Romans 13:9-10).

b. Having “too little” can lead people to do dumb things (Numbers 11:4-15).

2. Poverty driving some to do evil is especially true for those who have had and then have not (Lamentations 4:1-10).

3. This is not to say that being poor means you will fail (James 2:5).

B. Wealth CAN be dangerous (Revelation 3:14-19).

1. Materialistic “good times” can turn us from God (Deuteronomy 31:20).

2. Wealth CAN become a hinderance (Mark 10:17-25).

3. At the same time, wealth is not always dangerous (I Timothy 6:17).

C. Contentment is NOT dangerous (I Timothy 6:6-10).

1. Better is what (Psalms 37:16, Proverbs 15:16, and Proverbs 16:8)?

2. The right mindset (Luke 3:12-14 and Philippians 4:10-20).

D. Don’t be so focused on what you want so that you lose sight of what you have (Psalms 103:2 and Colossians 3:15).

1. All of us, in this congregation, have our physical needs being met (Acts 14:17).

2. In material things you could be broke, but be rich in other ways (Proverbs 13:7 and Ephesians 1:18).

3. In the end (II Peter 3:9-14), what treasure endures (Matthew 6:19-21)?



III. Conclusion: Matthew 6:24-34
