Rich Through Contentment

1 Timothy 6:5-8, “…They have wicked minds and have missed out on the truth. These people think religion is supposed to make you rich. And religion does make your life rich, by making you content with what you have. We didn’t bring anything into this world, and we won’t take anything with us when we leave. So we should be satisfied just to have food and clothes.”

Monday our youth group sent a team on a missions trip to Guatemala. They were unprepared for the great needs when they went last year. This year they took food, clothes, school supplies and money to purchase beds and other basic items.

Seeing others going without raises our contentment level exponentially.

We are never richer than when we give something of ours: time, money, items, etc. to someone who lacks that very thing.
