October 13 – November 11, 2018

In a world constantly striving for more, we often find ourselves feeling the opposite; empty. We attempt to fill our lives with things that are temporary. The clutter leaves things in our lives even more complex. God teaches us that fulfillment comes through wisdom not through acquisition. God’s wisdom teaches us that we live in a world of abundance not scarcity.

John Wesley, founder of the Methodist Movement, found fulfillment in a simple formula; Earn, Save, Give.
