This week we continued our series in 1 Timothy titled Steadfastness covering 1 Timothy 6:6-10.  Our focus in life can easily become the accumulation of money and power and influence, but as believers we are called to realize we are given so much more in Christ.  While wealth is not sinful, when we make wealth the goal of our lives we are in the wrong.  Our goal must be a focus on the things of God now and even more the eternal blessing of inheritance in Christ.

(1Ti 6:6 ESV) But godliness with contentment is great gain,
(1Ti 6:7 ESV) for we brought nothing into the world, and we cannot take anything out of the world.
(1Ti 6:8 ESV) But if we have food and clothing, with these we will be content.
(1Ti 6:9 ESV) But those who desire to be rich fall into temptation, into a snare, into many senseless and harmful desires that plunge people into ruin and destruction.
(1Ti 6:10 ESV) For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evils. It is through this craving that some have wandered away from the faith and pierced themselves with many pangs.
