Open-handed: Unclenching our Desires
Matthew 6:19-21
September 13, 2020

If we are going to handle our material possessions, money, and resources in a God-honoring way, we must begin by living open-handed with our desires. Our pull towards “stuff” cannot be stronger than our pull towards wanting to please, serve, and follow God.
