Be relax to what you have. Do not rush to gain more and more. Money is not the source of our happiness. Our source of content is not money or any other short luxury life here on earth. These are those words that Paul was teaching to young Timothy. We need to learn to be happy with what we already have. We came naked to this world and we will leave naked also. We do not accept any other teaching regards to this. Our God is not a poor God. Okay let me a little explain more. The issue is not having a money but how we handle the money is matter.
I want you to read 1 Timothy 6 : 6-10
Bible says: People who are trying to get rich fall into temptation..( verse 9 ).
Most Pastors read loudly and gave comment about verse 10 which it says : The love of money is the root of all kinds of evil. And they translate and saying ” Having a lot of money is good but not loving it ” .. We need to be so careful ( saying to myself too) .. Verse before and after are very important lesson Paul teaching to young Timothy ( young me and you).
Lets finish reading verse 10 … Some have wandered away from the faith and have impaled themselves with a lot of pain because they made money their goal.
Although , Money is a great motivation for everyone but our final goal might not be it. Our final goal to be content to what we have , He has given us everything in Christ.
But Godliness with contentment is great gain.
It is good to buy house and car and everything we need. They are good. But the real contentment are not in those things. God says to us run away from all these things…
But , you , Oh Child of God. You know what I am talking about. Some even brought the pain into their life because of the love of money.
Are you content with what you already have? If yes what is the source of your contentment?
If not , what do you need more?
We can be thankful for many things in our life. The house we are living in , the food we have , the cloths we have and many other things.. you name it. Let us persue righteousness , love , endurance , and gentleness and grab _ hold of eternal life – you were called to it.
Honour and eternal power belong to Him. Amen
