1 Timothy 6:6-11 (NLT)...

FROM TODAY'S READING (3/19/2018)...


"For in order for capitalism to work -- in order for it to produce a good and a stable society -- the traditional Christian virtues are essential."

Antonin Scalia


1 Timothy 6:6-11 (NLT) Yet true godliness with contentment is itself great wealth. After all, we brought nothing with us when we came into the world, and we can’t take anything with us when we leave it. So if we have enough food and clothing, let us be content. 

But people who long to be rich fall into temptation and are trapped by many foolish and harmful desires that plunge them into ruin and destruction. For the love of money is the root of all kinds of evil. And some people, craving money, have wandered from the true faith and pierced themselves with many sorrows. 

But you, Timothy, are a man of God; so run from all these evil things. Pursue righteousness and a godly life, along with faith, love, perseverance, and gentleness.
