content, faith, hope, love, love for money, money, root of all evil
Paul’s first letter to Timothy (Part 2): 1 Timothy 4–6
What can you take to heaven with you? Love, faith and hope, since these are the things that last forever.
Therefore, we should be content with what we have.
1 Timothy 6:6-7 Yet true godliness with contentment is itself great wealth. After all, we brought nothing with us when we came into the world, and we can’t take anything with us when we leave it. So if we have enough food and clothing, let us be content.
And not spend our lives trying to get rich on something that won’t last.
1 Timothy 6:9-10 But people who long to be rich fall into temptation and are trapped by many foolish and harmful desires that plunge them into ruin and destruction. For the love of money is the root of all kinds of evil. And some people, craving money, have wandered from the true faith and pierced themselves with many sorrows.
