Bible Reading Day 300

Day 300: October 27 (1 Timothy 6)

Good morning !

Day 300: Well done for making it this far!

Today, in chapter 6, Paul instructs Timothy about true godliness. The principles he has outlined so far in this letter are “wholesome teachings” that “promote a godly life.”

Paul contrasts this with those who like to make up complex teachings designed to line their own pockets. Timothy will do well to stay away from that trap! Riches are attractive, but Paul counsels that “true godliness with contentment is itself great wealth.”

The final advice to Timothy is to flee from evil, fight for God’s good, and teach others to do the same.

As you read the closing section of the letter, how does Paul’s advice speak to your heart today?

Have a great day!
