***Only those who are rich in trust are truly rich

*** Misplaced Trust – James 5:1-3a - This is important enough to give a slap across the face to bring us to our senses. - Wealth will never truly give you security - We reach for wealth because we long for control The Curse of Wealth (Winning the Lotto) From Misplaced Trust to Major Malfunctions – James 5:3b-6 - Trusting wealth makes us unwise, unjust and unsafe - We miss opportunities to invest our energy into what really matters

***Only those who are rich in trust are truly rich

 

*** Who We’re Becoming (God cares about who we’re becoming) Rich in Trust – James 5:7-8 - Being patient requires you to believe that God is ultimately in control - Trusting God includes hard work. Trust and effort are not enemies. - Trusting God makes us truly rich.
