Daily word for 25 March 2017 – 1 Timothy 6:17-19
Dear brothers and sisters,
Today I want to encourage you with the words from 1 Timothy 6:17-19 (NIV):
17 Command those who are rich in this present world not to be arrogant nor to put their hope in wealth, which is so uncertain, but to put their hope in God, who richly provides us with everything for our enjoyment. 18 Command them to do good, to be rich in good deeds, and to be generous and willing to share. 19 In this way they will lay up treasure for themselves as a firm foundation for the coming age, so that they may take hold of the life that is truly life.
God tells us never to trust on our own wealth, as it can be taken away from you very easily. Also when God blesses you with riches, than you are obliged to do good with it. When you have the opportunity to help others, do so! And know that God will bless you in return.
