Building Mercy’s House: Generous Together (October 7th, 2018)

Two stories about houses from this week’s readings, 1 Kings 1:1-10 and Luke 12:13-34, feature two very different approaches to creating a foundation for your life and faith. As part of our sermon series on generosity, called “Building Mercy’s House,” Pastor Paige explored King Solomon’s example of seeking God first, before seeking wealth. She contrasted that with the rich man in Jesus’ parable whose focus was building bigger barns to preserve his abundant crops for himself. Solomon’s approach helps us understand how we can be generous with everything that God has given us, and how we can build mercy’s house for the sake of our community.
