1 Timothy 6 : How we can become really rich

v6 But God’s people should be happy with what they have. And they should really live for God. Then they are really rich. v7 When we were born, we brought nothing into this world. And when we die, we cannot take anything out of it.

Verse 6 ‘Really rich’ does not mean that Christians will have lots of money. It means that they will receive very good things from God, inside themselves. God will make their *spirits strong and happy. He will always be there to help them. And they will live with him always.

v8 So, if we have food and clothes, we should be happy. We should not want more things. v9 But if people want lots of money, *Satan easily gets power over them. And he causes them to want all kinds of bad things. Those bad things are things that only fools want. Those bad things will hurt them. Those things completely destroy people. v10 When people really want money, that causes all kinds of bad things to happen. Some people have stopped believing Christ because they want to get more and more money. But they have caused themselves to be sad because they have very many troubles.
