Godliness and Contentment.

Paul was writing to Timothy in Ephesus. Ephesus was a free and rich port in the Roman empire. They had all the modern conveniences, running water, sewer systems, paved roads and street lights. They also had Roman air conditioning. The city was wealthy. There was over 100,000 people. The temptation to chase money was great. Paul wrote as Jesus said, honor your master, so that God isn’t blasphemed. Even if your are a slave. God said that godliness with contentment is great gain. This is what we should strive for. God also said that the love of money is the root of all evil. So, how do we obtain godliness? By reading the word of God and doing what it says. And letting God have His way in your life. Then comes contentment, the peace of God that passes all understanding. I’ll say it again, godliness with contentment is great gain. (1 Timothy 6).
