“But godliness with contentment is great gain. 7 For we brought nothing into the world, and we can take nothing out of it. 8 But if we have food and clothing, we will be content with that. 9 Those who want to get rich fall into temptation and a trap and into many foolish and harmful desires that plunge people into ruin and destruction. 10 For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil. Some people, eager for money, have wandered from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs.”
1 Timothy 6:6-10 NIV
We would be wise to follow God’s Word and not put worldly values ahead of heavenly treasure. So much of the suffering in this world is self-inflicted by us and our pursuits using earthly wisdom. We were created out of love and for love. Even when we wander off God continues to seek us and bring us back to Him. No matter where you are or what has happened…remember He will never leave you or abandon you. Be content with the blessings you have and know that God is with you.
“Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said,
“Never will I leave you;
never will I forsake you.”[a]
Hebrews 13:5 NIV
