MATERIALISM (Acquisitiveness, Possessiveness, Worldliness)
What are the dangers of materialism?
BIBLE READING: Genesis 14:1-24
KEY BIBLE VERSE: They also carried off Abram’s nephew Lot and his possessions, since he was living in Sodom. (Genesis 14:12, niv)
Materialism can make us slaves to things. Lot’s greedy desire for the best of everything led him into sinful surroundings. His burning desire for possessions and success cost him his freedom and enjoyment. As a captive to Kedorlaomer, he faced torture, captivity, or death. Lot’s materialism had taken him from one form of slavery to another. In much the same way, we can be enticed into doing things or going places we shouldn’t. The prosperity we long for is captivating; it can both entice us and enslave us if our motives are not in line with God’s desires.
