1 Timothy Chapter 6

Our world measures success by material things. We have not made it until we have settled in our dream home or have a certain amount in savings or investments, or whatever you want to fill in the blank.  We can get wrapped up in thinking we are able to sustain ourselves.  This chapter reminds us where our heart should be with finances and with the things we have been blessed with. God has provided for us and has given everything we own to us. He has blessed us but wants us to bless others so we can proclaim who the ultimate Provider is.  This chapter also reminds us that hope in money is fickle but God is not. God is able to do all things and He wants us to yearn for, seek after, and rest in relationship with Him. He wants us to realize that we can be content in all things, because of who He is and what He is capable of. Let us be thankful for the blessings we have in our life, trusting in His provision, and willing to share that which we have already received.
