Godliness With Contentment

If any man teach otherwise, and consent not to wholesome words, even
the words of our Lord Jesus Christ, and to the doctrine which is
according to godliness; he is proud, knowing nothing, but doting
about questions and strifes of words, whereof cometh envy, strife,
railings, evil surmisings, perverse disputings of men of corrupt minds, and destitute of the truth, supposing that gain is godliness:
from such withdraw thyself. But godliness with contentment is great
gain

1 Timothy 6:3-6

An individual who will not obey the Word of God, who will not consent
to the Word, is proud; he’s ignorant. The Amplified Bible says these
people have a morbid fondness for controversy.

The world’s system says that money, power, and fame are God-like qualities that cause people who possess them to be admired, idolized, and worshipped. In other words, people in the world think that gain is
godliness.

However, Paul, said that godliness with contentment is great gain. The word content means “to be possessed of sufficient strength, strong, and
satisfied.” Contentment is an attitude as well as an inner state. When
you are satisfied on the inside, you have joy on the inside.
Contentment gives you the correct attitude, and then you will be
satisfied.

 

May the LORD bless Nigeria, American and Israel and take care of us; May the LORD make His face shine upon us, And be gracious to us; May the Lord lift up His countenance upon us, And give us peace, In Jesus Christ Name, we pray! Amen!
