CHRISTIAN MONEY BIBLE STUDY TRUTH
THE LOVE OF MONEY BIBLE VERSE EXPLAINED
It's always a joy to have you back to share
more Daily Bread. Today we're looking at the last
chapter of Paul's first letter to Timothy. To sort of sum up this letter,
Paul is advising Timothy about all the different kinds of people he's going
to encounter, because it's Timothy's job to organize the Church in Crete.
To make sure that the people perform their duties within the Church
effectively, they have to be managed by someone who knows people (their
characteristics). Of course everyone in the body of Christ has a vital role,
remember the hand is as important as the eye, AND they must coexist in
Now, Paul is an
experienced Apostle by this time and Timothy is a young pastor, so Paul is
helping Timothy to avoid unnecessary grief and problems. He started his
letter by saying, Don't listen to people who want to tell you that law is
more powerful than God's
Grace. Take a look at me, Paul reminds Timothy, If that were true, I,
the chief of sinners would surely not be the Apostle to the Gentiles.

THE LOVE OF MONEY BIBLE VERSE QUEST
the different people within the church, he told Timothy how to manage and
what to require of elders, women, bishops, deacons, widows, etc. Paul
includes a number of other points of importance and that's where we left
off. So continuing, Paul now writes some of the things that Timothy should
teach the people.
Let as many
servants as are under the yoke, count their masters worthy of all honor, so
the name of God and His doctrine isn't blasphemed.
You can compare this to
today's society by saying, workers should consider their employers worthy of
respect. And those whose employers are believers, don't judge them, because
they are brethren, but instead serve them because they are believers and
beloved, sharing the benefit.
So, anyone who
despises the boss, just because he's the boss, is not only doing their boss
an injustice, but themselves as well, since Christianity is ONE body.
CHRISTIAN MONEY BIBLE STUDY WARNING
THE LOVE OF MONEY BIBLE VERSE ADVENTURE
Naturally, if an
employer is ever abusive in any way, or doesn't follow what you know is
Christian behavior, then this of course doesn't apply. God certainly doesn't
expect you to honor someone who is in fact dishonorable or evil, whether
it's your boss or anyone else for that matter.
encourage these things. If any man teaches otherwise, and doesn't agree with
the wholesome words of our Lord Jesus Christ, and to the doctrine that
promotes godliness, he is proud, knowing nothing, struggling with questions
and words, and that causes envy (jealousy), fighting, reviling, evil
thoughts, misleading arguments of men of corrupt minds, and destitute of
(without) the TRUTH, assuming that gain is godliness. Don't associate with
such people. But godliness with contentment is great gain.
We brought nothing
into this world, and we surely can't carry anything out (Proverbs
27:24, Job 1:21).
So, having food and clothing, let's be content. But those who want to be
rich, they fall into temptation and a trap, and into many foolish and
hurtful desires, which drown men in destruction.
For the love of money is the root of all evil.
Some people who were greedy about money, have turned away from the Faith,
and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.
CHRISTIAN MONEY BIBLE STUDY DANGER
THE LOVE OF MONEY BIBLE VERSE DETAILS
Have you ever
caught yourself in this trap that Paul is talking about? You want something,
and you go through painstaking measures to get it, only to look back on it
later and find out it was a waste, not only of money, but of the time that
you could have been using to serve God. During that time, other evils also
had opportunity to sneak in, perhaps presenting yet another thing
that you just couldn't live without, so you put more efforts toward
yet another useless thing. Why do people want money? So they can get
things. Unnecessary things take you away from God. When you're
away from God, you're closer to evil. So, you can plainly see the truth in
Paul's words, the love of money is the root of all evil. Sorrowful, yes.
But you, O man of
God, shun these things and follow after righteousness, godliness, Faith,
love, patience, meekness. Fight the good fight
lay hold on (seek) eternal life,
where you are also called, and have confessed a good profession in front of
Usually Paul does
his honoring of the Lord at the beginning of his epistles, but in this one,
he saved it for the end. I feel like the importance of the words of praise
that are written in the letters of the New Testament aren't given as much
attention as the other content of the epistles in our generation, and I think they're so
eloquent and lovely, that I have to make them stand out for you. I also
think that they help people to learn how to pray and praise God more
effectively. Let's look.
CHRISTIAN MONEY BIBLE STUDY LESSON
THE LOVE OF MONEY BIBLE VERSE TEACHING
I give you commandment in the sight of God who
gives life to all things, and before Christ Jesus, Who before Pontius
Pilate witnessed a good confession, that you keep this commandment
without spot, blameless until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ,
which in His chosen time, He will reveal who is the blessed and only
Potentate (controlling power), the King of kings, and Lord of lords, who
has only immortality, living in the light which no man can approach
into, who no man has seen, nor can see, to whom be honor and eternal
might everlasting. Amen.
Command them that
are rich in this life, not to be proud, or trust in uncertain riches, but
trust in the living God, who gives us richly, all things to enjoy. Command
them to do good, that they be rich in good works, ready to give, willing to
share with the needy, storing up instead for themselves, a good foundation,
ready for the time to come, so that they may lay hold on (obtain) eternal
O Timothy, keep
what is put in your care, avoiding profane and vain babblings, and
oppositions of science falsely so called, which some professing have erred
(made mistakes) concerning the Faith. Grace be with you. Amen.
