IDOL’S – Money!
BIG IDEA-Do we Love God or Do we Love Money? It’s not what you have, but how you hold on to it.
Scripture: Matthew 6: 19-21, 24-34
In 1987 there was a movie that came out directed by Oliver Stone, entitled WALL STREET. It’s a story about a young and impatient stockbroker who is willing to do anything to get to the top, including trading illegal inside information taken through a ruthless and greedy corporate raider who takes the youth under his wing. Michael Douglas, who won an Academy Award for role of best actor, Charlie Sheen, and Daryl Hannah also stared in the movie.
Gordon Gekko played by Michael Douglas the main character in the movie has this quote “The point is ladies and gentlemen that greed, for lack of a better word, is good!”
I believe in the world, in America, we have followed the almighty IDOL of money for many years we have bought hook line and sinker into the American dream.
Now the Movie has a second part coming out WALL STREET – MONEY NEVER SLEEPS!
Who’s your GOD?
