In His Word Wednesday


But godliness with contentment is great gain. For we brought nothing into the world, and we can take nothing out of it. But if we have food and clothing, we will be content with that. People who want to get rich fall into temptation and a trap and into many foolish and harmful desires that plunge men into ruin and destruction. For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil. Some people, eager for money, have wandered from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs. But you, man of God, flee from all this, and pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, endurance and gentleness. ~ 1 Timothy 6:6-11

These verses give a lot of food for thought. Am I content with what I have...or am I always wanting more, more, more. Am I scrimping and saving just to build a nest egg...something to depend on in hard times? Or am I depending on God? Am I being a steward of God's resources...or am I allowing those resources to rule my life?
