Vitally important subject today, serious blind spot in this present generation. Followers of Christ must value godliness OVER gain, must see the temptation inherent in the attempt to use godliness AS A MEANS of gain. (see v 5) As we prepare for worship this morning, please reflect on these thoughts. “Keep deception and lies far from me, give me neither poverty nor riches; feed me with the food that is my portion, lest I be full and deny Thee. . .lest I be in want and steal and profane thy name.”—Proverbs 30:8. “God may allow His servant to succeed when He has disciplined him to the point that he no longer needs it to be happy. The man who is elated by success and cast down by failure is still a carnal man.”–A. W. Tozer.
See you in worship in a few hours. You are loved!
