1 Timothy 6:3-10

Listen as Peter starts to preach the conclusion of Paul’s first letter to Timothy.  The false teachers that were in Ephesus were motivated by a desire to get wealthy.  Paul touches on the issue of money and makes a declaration that many in our day would challenge.  However, God lead Paul to make this declaration.  Loving money creates all kinds of trouble.  This is true in the church as well as in society.  Instead of wanting money, God has Paul write that godliness with contentment is where the real gain is.  Since none of the wealth of this world will follow us into the world to come, we would be wiser to focus on treasure with God than treasure with people.
