Who wants to be a millionaire?

As I've said before (perhaps), sermons are not the place for footnotes or acknowledgements, but I feel I ought to confess to largely plagarising Vaughan Roberts' sermon (preached at St Ebbe's, Oxford) on Ecclesiasties 5:10-6 today at Holy Trinity, Eastbourne.

My working title was: Money & Meaning: Are the better off, better off?

The headings went something like this:

Wisdom about Wealth

(1) The frustrations of wealth: it doesn’t satisfy

(2) The fragility of wealth: it doesn’t last

(3) The fount of wealth: it’s God’s gift

(4) The futility of wealth: it isn’t ultimate

Sorry for more alliteration!
