A Short-Term Condition - February 8, 2017

Perhaps you need the reminder that I need— Don’t put your trust in stuff!  Paul told Timothy, “Command those who are rich in this present world not to be arrogant but to put their hope in God, who richly provides us with everything for our enjoyment” (1 Timothy 6:17 NIV).

The “rich in this. . .world.” That’s you. That’s me. If you have enough education to listen to this program, enough resources to own a book, you likely qualify as a prosperous person. And that’s okay. Prosperity is a common consequence of faithfulness. Paul didn’t tell the rich to feel guilty about being rich; he just urged caution. Money is just a short-term condition. The abundance or lack of it will only be felt for one life. So, if you have a lot, don’t put your trust in it. Put your trust in God.
