God over Money

Matthew 6:22–23

Loving money over God is soul-suicide. In this lab, Pastor John reminds us that those who love money over God will be eternally poor, while those who love God over money will own the universe.

Principle for Bible Reading

Interpret What Is Unclear by What Is Clear

If you cannot understand a passage, a helpful thing to do is discern what is clear from the passage (and surrounding passages) to see whether it can shed light on what is unclear.
