Ministry of Contentment- 1 Timothy 6:6-10/Philippians 4:11-13

1 TIMOTHY 6:6-10- BUT GODLINESS WITH CONTENTMENT IS GREAT GAIN, FOR WE BROUGHT NOTHING INTO THIS WORLD, AND WE CANNOT TAKE ANYTHING OUT OF THE WORLD.  BUT IF WE HAVE FOOD AND CLOTHING, WITH THESE WE WILL BE CONTENT.  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.  FOR THE LOVE OF MONEY IS A ROOT  OF ALL KINDS OF EVILS.  IT IS THROUGH THIS CRAVING THAT SOME HAVE WONDERED AWAY FROM THE FAITH AND PIERCED THEMSELVES WITH MANY PANGS.  

 

PHILIPPIANS 4:11-13- NOT THAT I AM SPEAKING OF BEING IN NEED, FOR I HAVE LEARNED IN WHATEVER SITUATION I AM TO BE CONTENT.  I KNOW HOW TO BE BROUGHT LOW, AND I KNOW HOW TO ABOUND.  IN ANY AND EVERY CIRCUMSTANCE, I HAVE LEARNED THE SECRET OF FACING PLENTY AND HUNGER, ABUNDANCE AND NEED.  I CAN DO ALL THINGS THROUGH HIM WHO STRENGTHENS ME.
