Sermon: “Chasing After Wealth” from Dan Mitchum

Dan Mitchum - June 4, 2023

Chasing After Wealth

What would you do with a million dollars? Better yet, what would you do with 100 million dollars? All of your problems would be solved, right? Or would they? King Solomon, the author of Ecclesiastes, had an estimated net worth of 2.1 trillion dollars! And yes, his vast wealth enabled him to enjoy many aspects of life at a level beyond our wildest dreams. But, in no uncertain terms, he tells us his fortune failed to bring purpose and meaning to his life. It was all vaporous. Chasing after wealth will leave us wanting regardless of how much money we accumulate. Money doesn’t have the power to satisfy us or provide the security we hope it will bring. We’ll discover why that is actually a good thing! The uncertainty of worldly riches compels us to seek true satisfaction in God alone.

He denied himself nothing his eyes desired and refused his heart no pleasure. And what did he discover?
