1Timothy 6
New Living Translation
6All slaves should show full respect for their masters so they will not bring shame on the name of God and his teaching.G1526G3745G1401G3745G1526G5259G2218G2233G2398G1203G514G3956G5092G3363G3686G2316G2532G1319G987G3363G987

False Teaching and True Riches

2If the masters are believers, that is no excuse for being disrespectful. Those slaves should work all the harder because their efforts are helping other believers who are well loved. Teach these things, Timothy, and encourage everyone to obey them.G1161G2192G4103G1203G2706G3361G2706G3754G1526G80G235G3123G1398G3754G1526G4103G2532G27G482G2108G5023G1321G2532G3870 3Some people may contradict our teaching, but these are the wholesome teachings of the Lord Jesus Christ. These teachings promote a godly life.G1536G2085G2532G4334G3361G5198G3056G2257G2962G2424G5547G2532G1319G2596G2150 4Anyone who teaches something different is arrogant and lacks understanding. Such a person has an unhealthy desire to quibble over the meaning of words. This stirs up arguments ending in jealousy, division, slander, and evil suspicions.G5187G1987G3367G235G3552G4012G2214G2532G3055G1537G3739G1096G5355G2054G988G4190G5283 5These people always cause trouble. Their minds are corrupt, and they have turned their backs on the truth. To them, a show of godliness is just a way to become wealthy.G3859G444G1311G3563G2532G650G225G3543G4200G1511G2150G575G5108G868 6Yet true godliness with contentment is itself great wealth.G1161G2150G3326G841G2076G3173G4200 7After all, we brought nothing with us when we came into the world, and we can't take anything with us when we leave it.G1063G1533G3762G1519G2889G1212G3754G1410G1627G3761G5100G1627 8So if we have enough food and clothing, let us be content.G1161G2192G1305G2532G4629G714G5125G714 9But people who long to be rich fall into temptation and are trapped by many foolish and harmful desires that plunge them into ruin and destruction.G1161G1014G4147G1706G1519G3986G2532G3803G2532G4183G453G2532G983G1939G3748G1036G444G1519G3639G2532G684 10For the love of money is the root of all kinds of evil. And some people, craving money, have wandered from the true faith and pierced themselves with many sorrows.G1063G5365G2076G4491G3956G2556G3739G5100G3713G635G575G4102G2532G4044G1438G4044G4183G3601

Paul’s Final Instructions

11But you, Timothy, are a man of God; so run from all these evil things. Pursue righteousness and a godly life, along with faith, love, perseverance, and gentleness.G1161G4771G5599G444G2316G5343G5023G1161G1377G1343G2150G4102G26G5281G4236 12Fight the good fight for the true faith. Hold tightly to the eternal life to which God has called you, which you have confessed so well before many witnesses.G75G2570G73G4102G1949G166G2222G1519G3739G2564G2532G2564G2532G3670G2570G3671G1799G4183G3144 13And I charge you before God, who gives life to all, and before Christ Jesus, who gave a good testimony before Pontius Pilate,G3853G4671G3853G1799G2316G3588G2227G3956G2532G5547G2424G3588G1909G4194G4091G3140G2570G3671 14that you obey this command without wavering. Then no one can find fault with you from now until our Lord Jesus Christ comes again.G4571G5083G1785G784G423G3360G2015G2257G2962G2424G5547 15For at just the right time Christ will be revealed from heaven by the blessed and only almighty God, the King of all kings and Lord of all lords.G3739G2398G2540G1166G3588G3107G2532G3441G1413G935G936G2532G2962G2961 16He alone can never die, and he lives in light so brilliant that no human can approach him. No human eye has ever seen him, nor ever will. All honor and power to him forever! Amen.G3588G3441G2192G110G3611G5457G3762G676G3739G444G1492G3761G1410G1492G3739G5092G2532G2904G166G281 17Teach those who are rich in this world not to be proud and not to trust in their money, which is so unreliable. Their trust should be in God, who richly gives us all we need for our enjoyment.G3853G4145G1722G3568G165G5309G3361G5309G3366G1679G1909G83G4149G235G1722G2198G2316G3588G3930G2254G4146G3956G1519G619 18Tell them to use their money to do good. They should be rich in good works and generous to those in need, always being ready to share with others.G14G4147G1722G2570G2041G1511G2130G2843 19By doing this they will be storing up their treasure as a good foundation for the future so that they may experience true life.G597G1438G2570G2310G1519G3195G2443G1949G166G2222 20Timothy, guard what God has entrusted to you. Avoid godless, foolish discussions with those who oppose you with their so-called knowledge.G5599G5095G5442G3872G1624G952G2757G2532G477G1108G5581 21Some people have wandered from the faith by following such foolishness. May God's grace be with you all.G3739G5100G1861G795G4012G4102G5485G3326G4675G281
