Today's reading: 1 Timothy 6:1-10

1 Timothy 6 is one of a number of passages in the Bible that warn us about loving money or riches. It's a reminder that never gets old or out of date, because as long as we are living on this side of heaven, money/riches/wealth will be an ever present temptation that carries with it some serious consequences. Paul knows this, so after urging us to have a mindset of contentment, he issues these strong words of warning.

"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" (vs. 9-10).
