A Revolving Gospel

Intro:  2.3 billion square feet of storage rental space.  A $38 billion business. Grows 7.7% annually since 2012.  What it represents is our inability to get rid of stuff and stuff out of circulation. Hoarded riches are God’s blessings out of commission.

The Tail doesn’t wag the human

Sermon Scripture:  James 3 Sermon Big Idea:  Great and awful things are done with the tongue.  But, the tongue is the tool, the speaker is the culprit. Becoming a teacher comes with strict judgment. A restless tongue leads to a reckless life. The operator, not the tool, seeks wisdom. While we shouldn’t all become teachers, we should all desire to become teachers.
