The Possession Trap - Part 1

Is your happiness in life tied to the things you own? We’re constantly told that satisfaction is only a purchase away… Today on Bold Steps with Pastor Mark Jobe, what God says about possessions and the trap that keeps us from God’s greater meaning and purpose for our lives. Let me ask you, what material things do you value most in your life? What is at the center? Were you happy with your smartphone a month ago, but are now seeing the latest model being advertised and are feeling like you’ve been left behind? Do you feel like satisfaction is only a purchase away? Well, it’s a trap very easy to fall into, especially in our culture of consumerism. Perhaps it’s natural to have a sense of desire for something we don’t have, but there’s a greater meaning and purpose behind it, isn’t there? Where do you find your identity?
