1 Timothy 4:4-6: “For every creature of God is good, and nothing is to be refused if it is received with thanksgiving; for it is sanctified by the word of God and prayer. If you instruct the brethren in these things, you will be a good minister of Jesus Christ, nourished in the words of faith and of the good doctrine which you have carefully followed.” God’s creation is called “very good,” Believers are to enjoy good things God creates and gives to us to manage. Sanctified means “set apart.” Marriage, eating, and possessions are, in reality, spiritual issues. They are to be enjoyed as the believer recognizes their proper purposes before God. Continued growth in the church occurs through words of faith and instruction in good doctrine. Sound doctrine is the basis of a healthy ministry.
