Covetousness can destroy the soul in hell forever. The reason I am sure that this destruction is not some temporary financial fiasco, but final destruction in hell, is what Paul says... in 1 Timothy 6:12. He says that covetousness is to be resisted with the fight of faith. Then he adds, “Take hold of the eternal life to which you were called and about which you made the good confession.” What’s at stake in fleeing covetousness and fighting for contentment by faith in future grace is eternal life. So, when Paul says in 1 Timothy 6:9 that the desire to be rich plunges people into ruin, he isn’t saying that greed can mess up your marriage or your business (which it certainly can!). He is saying that covetousness can mess up your eternity. Or, as 1 Timothy 6:10 says at the end, “It is through this craving that some have wandered away from the faith and pierced themselves with many pangs” (literally: “impaled themselves on many pains”). God has gone the extra mile in the Bible to warn us mercifully that the idolatry of covetousness is a no-win situation. It’s a dead-end street in the worst sense of the word. It’s a trick and a deadly trap. So, my word to you is the word of 1 Timothy 6:11: “Flee these things.” When you see it coming (in a television ad or a Christmas catalog or an Internet pop-up or a neighbor’s purchase), run from it the way you would run from a roaring, starving lion escaped from the zoo. “Take hold of the eternal life.”
John Piper

Some people, craving money, have wandered from the true faith and pierced themselves with many sorrows. 1 Timothy 6:10 Christians can become so addicted to money that they lose all perspective and forget what they are really here on earth to accomplish. How sad to spend so much time earning a living that you do not have time to enjoy the living! I am not referring to those who must work long hours just to keep the family fed and clothed. I am referring to those who cannot do without the luxuries of life that they think the luxuries are essential. Many spend so much time obtaining an income for that level of life that they really have no time for God. Such an attitude greatly affects our spiritual priorities--spiritual things are bound to suffer and to take second place to the things of the world.

Today’s Word With Joel and Victoria Osteen – Money
Today’s Scripture 1 Timothy 6:10, NLT For the love of money is the root of all kinds of evil. And some people, craving money, have wandered from the true faith and pierced themselves with many sorrows.

How to pray for unbelievers
Brothers, my heart’s desire and prayer to God for them is that they may be saved. (Romans 10:1)
Paul prays that God would convert Israel. He prays for her salvation! He does not pray for ineffectual influences, but for effectual influences. And that is how we should pray too.
We should take the new covenant promises of God and plead with God to bring them to pass in our children and our neighbors and on all the mission fields of the world.
God, take out of their flesh the heart of stone and give them a new heart of flesh. (Ezekiel 11:19)
Circumcise their heart so that they love you! (Deuteronomy 30:6)
Father, put your Spirit within them and cause them to walk in your statutes. (Ezekiel 36:27)
Grant them repentance and a knowledge of the truth that they may escape from the snare of the devil. (2 Timothy 2:25–26)
Open their hearts so that they believe the gospel! (Acts 16:14)
When we believe in the sovereignty of God — in the right and power of God to elect and then bring hardened sinners to faith and salvation — then we will be able to pray with no inconsistency, and with the confidence of great biblical promises for the conversion of the lost.
Thus, God has pleasure in this kind of praying because it ascribes to him the right and honor to be the free and sovereign God that he is in election and salvation.

James: Riches and Patience
James: Riches and Patience I doubt James intended to imply that patient forbearance will restore fortunes. Instead, patient forbearance is the rich soil in which the implanted seed can bear fruit. #James5 #PatientForbearance #Job #Wealth
James was intent on teaching wisdom, and had been creating a list of actions a wise person takes. They are A wise person lives in humility, submitting their life to God, allowing the Holy Spirit to control their thoughts, their feelings and thereby their words and actions. A wise person knows a reboot is just a confession away and is therefore always living a life of repentance.A wise person is…

"For the love of money is the root of all evil" - That is, of all kinds of evil. This is evidently not to be understood as literally true, for there are evils which cannot, be traced to the love of money - the evils growing out of ambition, and intemperance, and debasing lusts, and of the hatred of God and of goodness. The expression here is evidently a popular saying - "all sorts of evils grow out of the love of money." ...Of the truth of this, no one can doubt. No small part of the crimes of the world can be traced to the love of gold. But it deserves to be remarked here, that the apostle does not say that "money is the root of all evil," or that it is an evil at all. It is the "love" of it which is the source of evil.

they say, go to the feast and eat
what's that? the table isn't set?
i don't mean this room,
i mean the next one, the next one, the next . . .
i cannot help you
but i can't get there
under my own power, i am frail
i know i need to eat, help me, please
i am so weak
help me to get there before my body fails
they say, let go of me
go to the table and feast
what's that? you are too weak?
just eat, just eat, just eat, just eat. . .
but i can't get there
under my own power, i am frail
i know i need to eat, help me, please
i am so weak
help me to get there before my body fails
the table is not set here,
go to the next room, the table is set there
go to the feast and eat
and maybe you won't be so weak
but do not ask me
do not ask me
do not ask me
to help you get there
let go of me
you need to eat
go to the table and feast
i mean the next room over,
no, don't ask me
to help you get there
you should just eat
but i can't get there
under my own power, i am frail
i know i need to eat, help me, please
i am so weak
help me to get there before my body fails
-frail feast, k.m.i.

Certainly, the love of money is the root of all kinds of evil. Some people who have set their hearts on getting rich have wandered away from the Christian faith and have caused themselves a lot of grief. — 1 Timothy 6:10 | Names of God Bible (NOG) The Names of God Bible © 2011 by Baker Publishing Group.

But godliness with contentment is great gain, for we brought nothing into the world, and we cannot take anything out of the world. But if we have food and clothing, with these we will be content. But those who desire to be rich fall into temptation, into a snare, into many senseless and harmful desires that plunge people into ruin and destruction. For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evils. It is through this craving that some have wandered away from the faith and pierced themselves with many pangs.
1 Timothy 6:6‭-‬10

What am I, Lord, that you should think of me?
“How cool is it that the same God that created mountains and oceans and galaxies looked at you and thought the world needed one of you too.”
— Unknown
“When I consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers, The moon and the stars, which You have ordained; What is man that You take thought of him, And the son of man that You care for him? Yet You have made him a little lower than God, And You crown him with glory and majesty!” (Psalm 8:3-6)
I love this quote & verse! It squeezes my heart and makes me feel so loved by my Father, my Creator. To know that He chose to create us. He didn’t need to but He wanted to! He loved us even before He made us and as if that weren’t enough He made us in His Own Image!
“Then God said, “Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness, so that they may rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky, over the livestock and all the wild animals, and over all the creatures that move along the ground.” So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them. God blessed them and said to them, “Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky and over every living creature that moves on the ground.” (Genesis 1:26-28)
I’m forever honored, grateful, awestruck. Not just that He made mankind, but that even after that He looked at all He made and thought the world needed one of me too. He made us each unique, beautiful, and with a purpose.
"He has saved us and called us to a holy life—not because of anything we have done but because of his own purpose and grace." (2 Timothy 1:9)
“I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.” (Psalm 139:14)
So not only did He create us but He chose us. Time and time again our God chooses us.
“For he chose us in him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight. In love he predestined us for adoption to sonship through Jesus Christ, in accordance with his pleasure and will—to the praise of his glorious grace, which he has freely given us in the One he loves.” (Ephesians 1:4-6)
“For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.” (Ephesians 2:10)
God makes no mistakes.
“For in him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through him and for him.” (Colossians 1:16)
The next time you think you’re not enough or you’re focusing on your flaws and on what you’re not. Remember HE made you and chose to make you in the first place.
God loves you!
