1 Timothy 6:6 But godliness with contentment is great gain
Paul warned Timothy about false teachers who wanted to use the church for financial gain. If these people were looking for security, they were on the wrong track.
Money, which comes and goes, never brings real protection. Our security lies in God’s provision.
Whether or not we have a large bank account, we can feel content in Jesus. The one who brought us into this world will never forget we require food, clothing and rest.
When we truly trust in Jesus, contentment is sure to follow.
