Message: Extract of TFTD from Thomas Govaers

This week's takeaway from church

Psychological research tells us that the way to get the most joy out of our material goods is to share them. We are humans that are made for community, not dragons that need a pile of golden treasure to sit on. Think about it: the best stories we tell over a good cup of coffee are about friends, about community and about people we meet. expensive cars will break down, but if we truly meet each other, we are forever changed.

If the shrewd manager in the story thinks he can strengthen relationships by committing a sin and stealing from his former master, imagine how much more you can do if you come from a position of integrity and respect. We know there is something bigger than earthly wealth; Jesus has shown us that true community is where the kingdom of God becomes visible.
