Today, you’ll hear a very simple yet powerful message, “Love people before things.” Here’s a Warning: When we love things more than people, we destroy relationships, families, companies, churches, ministries, friendships. We destroy ourselves.
Think about it. Our worst problems—corruption, war, crime, drugs—all come from this one decision of loving things more than people.
I’m not against money. For crying out loud, I’m a financial teacher. You cannot put food on the table or live under a roof or send your kids to school without money. You cannot build an orphanage or send out missionaries or broadcast God’s messages through media without money.
But you must follow this one rule of loving people over things.
