But godliness actually is a means of great gain when accompanied by contentment. - >1 Timothy 6:6
Godliness is the greatest possession. The possibility of loss drives the worries that drain us of contentment. But when we fix our eyes on the greatest possession—the one that stands for eternity—and realize that it can never be lost, contentment results. In the eyes of God, we are declared godly the moment we trust Christ. In this world, transformation begins through His Spirit, giving us the experience of the godliness we already have in Him. “He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep to gain what he cannot lose,” said Jim Elliott, before he was martyred in South America.
