Sermon: “Chasing After Wealth” from Dan Mitchum

Dan Mitchum - June 11, 2023

Walking in Wisdom

New York Yankees legend Yogi Berra passed away in 2015. His contributions to baseball are great, but he may be best remembered for his unwitting contribution to the English language. Berra spoke countless expressions and turns of phrase that, on the one hand, didn’t make any sense, but on the other, they contained wisdom and truth. Here are a few Yogi Berra-isms: You can observe a lot by just watching. It’s like deja vu all over again. No one goes there nowadays—it’s too crowded. Baseball is 90 percent mental, and the other half is physical. A nickel ain’t worth a dime anymore. Always go to other people’s funerals, otherwise, they won’t come to yours. Why buy good luggage? You only use it when you travel. The future ain’t what it used to be. Now, to be fair to Yogi Berra, some of these quotes may not have come from him. As he so perfectly put it, “I never said most of the things I said.” Sunday we’ll once again hear from Solomon, the wisest person ever to walk the planet. And while Solomon’s words aren’t humorous, they are life-changing. From Ecclesiastes 7:8-20, the Teacher will tell us how to walk in wisdom. He’ll give us guidance on how we can trust God in good times and bad, how we can cut ties with past regrets or longings, and how we can walk in the amazing grace of God. Join us at 9:00 or 10:30 am!

From Series: "Ecclesiastes: The Secret of Life"

This week we start a new sermon series on one of the most puzzling books of the Bible. Ecclesiastes was written by a man searching for the secret of life. Hoping to find the answer, he experimented with everything life has to offer. He threw amazing parties, built breathtaking buildings, amassed incredible wealth—and that’s just for starters. He denied himself nothing his eyes desired and refused his heart no pleasure. And what did he discover?
