What does the tragic character Gollum from Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings¬†series teach us about greed? This Sunday we continued a Lent series looking at the Seven Deadly Sins through the lens of pop culture villains. Our Scripture for this sermon was Luke [12:13]-21, known as the Parable of the Rich Fool. As Gollum demonstrates, greed twists us into something less than what God intended.

Greed turns us from the God we need to the stuff we want.

P.S. Part 1 of this series was on Ash Wednesday and it was not recorded.
