Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have,
because God has said, “Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.”
Not that I was ever in need, for I have learned how to be content with whatever I have. I know how to live on almost nothing or with everything. I have learned the secret of living in every situation, whether it is with a full stomach or empty, with plenty or little. For I can do everything through Christ, who gives me strength.
So if we have enough food and clothing, let us be content.
1 Timothy 6:8
But I have calmed and quieted myself,
I am like a weaned child with its mother;
like a weaned child I am content.
Don’t love money; be satisfied with what you have. For God has said,
“I will never fail you. I will never abandon you.
Yet true godliness with contentment is itself great wealth.
1 Timothy 6:6
Better to have little, with fear for the LORD, than to have great treasure and inner turmoil.
The fear of the LORD leads to life; then one rests content, untouched by trouble.
That’s why I take pleasure in my weaknesses, and in the insults, hardships, persecutions,
and troubles that I suffer for Christ. For when I am weak, then I am strong.
2 Corinthians 12:10
