1 Timothy 6: 17-19:”Command those who are rich in this present age not to be haughty, nor to trust in uncertain riches but in the living God, who gives us richly all things to enjoy. Let them do good, that they be rich in good works, ready to give, willing to share, storing up for themselves a good foundation for the time to come, that they may lay hold on eternal life.” Paul encourages Timothy to tell the rich not to be high-minded or proud and not to trust in uncertain riches. Only the living God can provide for all of our needs. Those with wealth are commanded to recognize God as the true source of their wealth and to be generous with their riches. The material blessings of Goad are to be enjoyed and used for the advancement of His kingdom, not for self-centered living. The scriptures teach that a believer’s works will be evaluated to see what his or her life in Christ has produced.
Enjoy your weekend brothers and sisters!
