1 Timothy 6:17-21

17 Command those who are rich in this present world not to be arrogant nor to put their hope in wealth, which is so uncertain, but to put their hope in God,who richly provides us with everything for our enjoyment. 18 Command them to do good, to be rich in good deeds, and to be generous and willing to share.19 In this way they will lay up treasure for themselves as a firm foundation for the coming age, so that they may take hold of the life that is truly life.

20 Timothy, guard what has been entrusted to your care. Turn away from godless chatter and the opposing ideas of what is falsely called knowledge,21 which some have professed and in so doing have departed from the faith.

Grace be with you all.

One response to “1 Timothy 6:17-21

  1. God can bless us with wealth in this world, and He does so for His purposes. But wealth is fleeting. We are to put our hope into Christ who is sure and certain and who will give us what we need and give us joy.

    WHatever we are blessed with, we are to share and be willing to give away. We are laying up treasure in the eternity to come.

    Don’t chase knowledge. Learn and invest into what is GOd’s truth and grow rich in this.
