Theme: GODLINESS WITH CONTENTMENT IS GREAT GAIN
Text: “For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.” – 1 Timothy 6:10.
Comment: Today in the world, the craze for wealth is unprecedented. People love money more than their own life and are ready to do anything to get it. This is because the society only acknowledges those who are rich and relegate the poor to the background which is not supposed to be the case. Many people are not bothered about how some persons became over-night wealthy. Rather, they are ready to dish out praises and encomiums in order to get a part of the largesse. Because of what some of the youths have put their hands into, they have compromised their faith and shown lukewarm attitude towards God and His work. There are so many evils associated with the get-rich-quick syndrome such as killing, stealing, lie-telling, adultery, fornication, homosexuality, etc. The Bible says: “Wealth gotten by vanity shall be diminished: but he that gathereth by labour shall increase.” – Proverbs 13:11
