- 1 Timothy 6:6-19 True Wealth (McLarty)
Heads up: The sermon this morning is about money. Don't blame me. It's the lectionary reading of the day, and the Spirit says, "Stick with the text." So, buckle your seat beats, as we explore the nature of money and its place in a life of faith. I'll try not to step on your toes.
- 1 Timothy 6:11-19 The Patience of Perseverance (Bowen)
Have we not become a quick fix culture? Whatever we need, whatever we do, of prime importance is speed. Jiffy Lube. Fast food. Instant oatmeal. One hour photo service. One day cleaners. Speed reading clinics. Now, I admit that there is stuff in print not worth much time. But speed read Shakespeare?

Sudie Black went out of her way to befriend strangers and newcomers to her town. It was nothing for her to sit up all night at a hospital, or to help a sick mother, to cook and clean for the elderly, and still turn up every Sunday to teach her Sunday School class. Why do people do things like that?
- 1 Timothy 6:11-12 Patient Living (Bowen)
Have we not become a quick fix culture? Jiffy Lube. Fast food. Instant oatmeal. One hour photo service. One day cleaners. Speed reading clinics. And we all have microwave ovens. Why? Only one reason that I can see. Certainly not the quality or results. Speed. Frozen dinner in seven minutes.
