The Believer and Money

The Believer and Money
posted February 12, 2017

This past week in preparing for the message on the believer and money from 1 Timothy 6, I came across what I thought was very helpful in thinking about contentment in my life. I think you will find it meaningful as well.

First, focus on what God has already entrusted to you. (We have so much.)

Second, disregard what you don't have. (Evidently, God doesn't think you need it if He hasn't given it to you.)

Third, refuse to covet what others have. (God, in His wisdom, has sovereignly determined what each will be given.)

Fourth, be thankful for God's gifts. (Make a list of the things God has richly given you to enjoy.)

And remember, "godliness actually is a means of great gain when accompanied by contentment."
