Wallpaper: Satisfied Contentment

Scriptures: 1 Timothy 3:1-7
by Jacob Abshire on March 27, 2023

Godly people build a reputation of being content with material things and satisfied in Christ. This is one of the characteristics listed in 1 Timothy 3:1-7. It is translated as “not a lover of money” in the ESV. The Bible provides a lot of scriptures that can motivate us to avoid the love of money, but it is the love of Christ that will ultimately quench all other materialistic affections.

“The saying is trustworthy: If anyone aspires to the office of overseer, he desires a noble task. Therefore an overseer must be above reproach, the husband of one wife, sober-minded, self-controlled, respectable, hospitable, able to teach, not a drunkard, not violent but gentle, not quarrelsome, not a lover of money. He must manage his own household well, with all dignity keeping his children submissive, for if someone does not know how to manage his own household, how will he care for God’s church? He must not be a recent convert, or he may become puffed up with conceit and fall into the condemnation of the devil. Moreover, he must be well thought of by outsiders, so that he may not fall into disgrace, into a snare of the devil.”
