Scriptures: Ecclesiastes 5:10 - 6:6, Proverbs 14:20, Luke 12:19-20, Genesis 1:28

Ecclesiastes is the Bible's book on the folly of pursuing life's pleasures apart from God. In this context, Solomon has much to say on the topic of money, wealth and possessions. If your household's net worth exceeds $61,000, including your home, then you're among the richest 10% of people on earth--despite the challenging economic conditions of the last few years. In this message, Dr. Merritt has much to say to every person in terms of how they view money. Money does not bring satisfaction or real security. In fact, the Bible tells us how to use our possessions as tools for God's work and in worship.

"Wise people plan their work and then they work their plan. One of the greatest things you can do on a daily basis is to prioritize your time whether it is on a calendar, or a sheet of paper or on your hand. If you will write down the four or five most important things you have to do on a given day, in order, and try to do them in order, it will amaze you at how much more productive you will become." --Dr. Merritt
