Use money visually during this illustration. The Barna Research Group asked Americans about the importance of religion. The results say something significant about where people find security. Here is how many people of various income brackets answered “yes” to the question, “Is religion very important in your life?”

• less than $20,000 annual income  71% • $20,000 to 29,999:  69%

• $30,000 to 39,999:  62% • $40,000 to 59,999  61%

• $60,000 or more  45%

We learn from this account that money gives us a false sense of security and focus! Idols creep into our lives and take the place of Christ. Some things never change! Remember the rich man who would not let go of his wealth and left Christ instead (Matt 19:16-22)?
