Rev. Dr. Lane Stephenson
"Mine, Yours, God's"
The attention (and money) of many have been directed toward the recent lotteries and the astronomical amounts to be won by the person with the right combination of numbers. The sales pitch of "You can't win if you don't play" ignores the reality that millions of people must lose for one person to win. No, the sermon this week is not on the lottery. But as we look at the eighth commandment, we see that God calls us to a life of giving, not stealing, and that He promises eternal blessings beyond measure to all who lay up treasures in heaven by embracing Christ and living for Him.
