“Every month the bills come!…Why can’t I have that?… There is more month than there is money.” If you have ever said things like this then then our study in Sunday School is for you. “Putting Possessions in Perspective” promises to lead adults to adopt a balanced and Biblical view on how to live in a materialistic world.
This Sunday our focal passage is 1 Chronicles 29 which is extremely interesting and uplifting. The setting is King David praying to God about His generosity and His ownership of everything imaginable, even our treasures.

As you know, his son Solomon is credited for the erection of this edifice that stood hundreds of years.
