Devotion – I Timothy 6

S – But godliness with contentment is great gain. For we brought nothing into the world, and we can take nothing out.

1 Timothy 6:6–7 CSB

O – Pursue our relationship with God.  Recognize I am “self-sufficient” in His provision and relationship.  He is my provider.  This attitude gives me a healthy perspective on all that I desire and enjoy in this world.  It also allows me to enjoy it in the present knowing that I shouldn’t hoard it for the future.

A – This is a good reflection of freedom.  When you work hard and are content with what the Lord has provided.   Planning and strategy are important for the future but taking the striving out of it is liberating.  Also, enjoying the fruits of your labor is important.  

R – Lord, help me to do this.
