".... and constant friction between men of corrupt mind, who have been robbed of the truth and who think that godliness is a means to financial gain. But godliness with contentment is great gain" (1 Timothy 6:5-6).
We give thanks to our Lord for teaching us that we lose truth if we do not follow His words and teachings. Godliness with contentment is great gain but love of money is a root of all kinds of evil.
Our gracious Lord who shows His grace, we praise you for teaching us your Word and how to live a godly life, and allowing us to live by faith and fight the good fight.
We confess that we often fall for the temptations of money as we live in materialistic world. Grant us Your grace and allow us to be free from materialistic things. Let us always remember that the truth is what matters in our lives.
Help us to not fall for greed and spiritual downfall. Instead, allow us to have contentment in truth. Let us not go through pain due to our greed but allow us to be thankful for what we have. We pray in the name of Jesus, who will allow us to have peace. Amen.
