Poor Boy

Making Poverty History

3 Parts | By:

Poverty. The word alone stirs images of the homeless, downtrodden and destitute. Yet, poverty isn’t reserved for those who are without money or a place to live. The truth is that every one of us faces a life of poverty—and it isn’t just about material possessions.

In this series, Ed Young unleashes a powerful, perspective—shifting teaching that looks at poverty like we have never seen it before. And we discover the richness of Scripture and the abundance of blessing God has in store for every area of our lives.

    1. The Manacles of Mammon

    The Manacles of Mammon

    Up and down the socioeconomic scale of society, people face a common struggle. It doesn't matter how much money we have, rich and poor alike can find themselves bound by materialism. But it's much more than a financial issue. This issue runs as deep as the soul. God's plan for our lives is to experience the power of true freedom. And as Ed Young takes a look at that plan, we discover just what it will take to break free from the manacles of mammon. Because when we look first to One who has blessed us rather than the things we have, we find ourselves able to experience the most out of life.

    2. Got To Give

    Got To Give

    The poor boy mentality manifests itself is some seemingly insignificant ways? an adjustment in attitude, some frivolous feedback, even a sarcastic statement. Yet, while it may seem slight, this mentality can keep us from experiencing the abundance God has for our lives. As Ed Young compares two different attitudes within the same New Testament story, we see the stark contrast of two spirits. And as we study the reactions of Mary and Judas at the feet of Jesus, we discover the blessings that we can enjoy when we let go of the poor boy mentality and instead realize that we have got to give.

    3. More Boy

    More Boy

    No matter who we are, how much stuff we have or where we live, every one of us faces a similar decision. We either choose live by a "poor boy" mentality; or we choose to live with a "more boy" mentality. In this message, Ed Young again takes a look at two contrasting characters from the Bible. As he reveals the stark differences between the getter and the giver, we see what it takes to experience a life of more. And we discover how God's blessings can truly begin to flow when we finally learn to let go.
