Matthew 6:19 - 6:34: God or Money

Sermon on the Mount
Sermon on the MountSteve Gregg

Steve Gregg examines Matthew 6:19-34, which presents a conflict between God and money. He views possessions as superfluous and believes that Jesus forbids work and job when taken without modification or qualification. Gregg proposes that Christians should lay up their treasures in heaven and serve God rather than money. He emphasizes that worrying is pointless and that trusting God is the sensible option because just like God provides for the animals, he will also provide for his children.
