What we save shows what we value. We save coupons, Christmas ornaments, plastic grocery bags, and a thousand other things. Each item signifies security, flexibility, utility, or identity. Jesus saved people, all types of people. His salvation is comprehensive, beautiful, and necessary. His title "Savior" is central to the Christmas story.

We like stuff. We like money. We like to keep and store (and keep score) and call things "mine." There's a word for this: Greed. It's the basis of a consumer culture and one of the deadly sins. It also plagued the early church, as evident in Ephesus (see 1 Timothy). This sermon will illustrate what greed wants, says, and thinks. Then it will make a case for generosity as the way of Jesus. Get those grabby hands ready.

Most of us have enough. The problem is that we want more, rather than share more. However, when God's people learn to share, letting generosity not greed drive them, they push back injustice and elevate others. Nehemiah fights economic ills related to the wall rebuilding project. He models a compassionate generosity that should be lived out in the church.
