‘Lust for money brings trouble and nothing but trouble. Going down that path, some lose their footing in the faith completely and live to regret it bitterly ever after.’ 1 Timothy 6:10
How tragically true those words that Paul wrote to young Timothy are! It’s estimated that corruption and fraud costs South Africans more than R100-billion each year. Think of the things we could do with that money!
Paul continues: ‘But you, Timothy, man of God: Run for your life from all this. Pursue a righteous lifea life of wonder, faith, love, steadiness, courtesy.’
Where does a lust for money show itself around you? What can you do to say ‘No!’ to that this week?
