Tuesday Devotional

“But godliness actually is a means of great gain when accompanied by contentment” (1 Timothy 6:6).

This verse is lifted from a passage that describes the existing tension between a contentment with what one has and a wanting and longing for what one doesn’t (vs. 6-10). To realize that what one has is the result of what God has given is to be liberated from the envy of what others have and the vain pursuit of this world’s material possessions. It is this freedom that enables one to focus with singleminded devotion on the greater rewards of the Kingdom.
