Colossians: Covetousness... Contentment... Confidence

Jesus is clear:"Covetousness will kill you"...and it is one of the prevailing sins of our generation.  Paul is clear:  "Kill Covetousness...nurture Contentment and Confidence in God to take care of you!". This is a continuation of the Colossians series (3:5-6) but will be spending most of our time looking at the Bible's teaching on the 3 C's of the sermon title.

Colossians 3:5-6
Luke 12:13-34
1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
1 Timothy 6:6-10
