Godliness with contentment
1 Timothy 6:6-10 (NIV) 6 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 People who want to get rich fall into temptation and a trap and into many foolish and harmful desires that plunge men 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.
We came with nothing and will leave with nothing. Greed fools us into thinking that we can live and leave with much.
Scripture says otherwise. Godliness with contentment is great gain! Such contentment flows out of godliness! And godliness develops as we allow God to transform our hearts.
