Scripture: 1 Timothy 6:6-10

Paul is giving advice to Timothy. The church has been established and has people in it who are earning money. Paul warns about the love of making profit. People who do so can easily fall into temptation. Instead we should be happy with what we have because godliness with contentment is much better.

1. What brings us great gain?
Godliness with contentment.
2. What often happens to people who want to get rich?
People who want to get rich fall into temptation and a trap and into many foolish and harmful desires that plunge men into ruin and destruction.
3. How can a desire for money affect our faith and life?
The love of money is a root of all kinds of evil.  Some people, eager for money, have wandered from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs.

Memory verse: 1 Timothy 6:10
For the love of money is at the root of all kinds of evil. (NLT)
