Godliness With Contentment

But godliness with contentment is great gain. For we brought nothing into the world, and we can take nothing out of it. 1 Timothy 6:6-7

Many Christians are blindly buying into the “Prosperity Gospel” where false prophets tell you God wants you to be rich and powerful, this is false doctrine. God is our provider and he wants you to be humble and thankful for what you have been given already.

Jesus never asked for money nor did he require his followers to give a certain percentage to be saved. Jesus taught to give what is in your heart and give to the poor. Because our riches are in Heaven and not in this world

But if we have food and clothing, we will be content with that. 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. 1 Timothy 6:8-9

Greed is a trap set by Satan, because your actions and thoughts are self-centered. Instead of looking to help others, you look for ways to help yourself.  Jesus said it will be easier for a Camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter Heaven. Basically hes saying its impossible, why? Because your heart is corrupted by the lust and power of money.

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 6:10

Jesus said Nobody can serve Two Masters, you cannot serve both God and Money. To be obsessed with something is called Idolatry, the world has made Money there new God. They kill for it, they lust for it, they sell there souls for it, but in the end it profits you nothing. The Green Paper discinigrates and won’t save your soul.

Don’t be like Judas who sold Jesus for money, his story didn’t have a happy ending and neither will anyone who worships Money. Trust in the Lord who is the only one who can give eternal life in Jesus Name Amen
