Read: 1 Timothy 6:7-19
Study: The apostle Paul wrote to his protégé Timothy that the truest measure of the good life is not material, but spiritual. He didn’t want the often-short-lived joys of material wealth to blind Timothy or the members of his church to God, “who richly provides” for our well-being. Then as now, even some Christians placed their hope first on their financial wealth.
Prayer: God, give me a clear vision of what is truly life. Give me the courage and moral strength to pull free of the false ideas of life that would enslave me and lead me away from you. Amen
