1.     The good news is: you are RICH! (Eccl. 5:19, NIV)


·        God has blessed me with MORE than I need.  I’m RICH.


2.     The bad news is: you are RICH! (Luke 18:24-25, NIV)


Application: Three challenges of being rich:


·        It is harder for you to depend on GOD.

·        It distracts you from true PRIORITIES.

·        You have greater RESPONSIBILITY.
