There are so many get-rich-quick schemes out in the world today! Some masquerade as products you can’t live without, or products that seem too good to be true. You can spend thousands of dollars trying to get your house just right or to have the latest clothes to fit in.
I am not saying that having resources is a bad thing, it's a wonderful blessing. But it can become a snare. I'm talking about an attitude, a mind set, that leads to constant discontentment. There is always something better on the horizon.
Fortunately this is not the case with God. When you submit to Him you lay hold of the most powerful partnership available in the history of the universe!
1 Timothy 6:6-12 (NET) says:
Now godliness combined with contentment brings great profit.
For we have brought nothing into this world and so we cannot take a single thing out either.
But if we have food and shelter, we will be satisfied with that.
Those who long to be rich, however, stumble into temptation and a trap and many senseless and harmful desires that plunge people into ruin and destruction.
For the love of money is the root of all evils. Some people in reaching for it have strayed from the faith and stabbed themselves with many pains.
But you, as a person dedicated to God, keep away from all that. Instead pursue righteousness, godliness, faithfulness, love, endurance, and gentleness.
Compete well for the faith and lay hold of that eternal life you were called for and made your good confession for in the presence of many witnesses.
