1 Timothy 6 - Key


But thou, O man of God, flee these things; and follow after righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, meekness.

We're supposed to flee the desire to be rich, the love of money, and the temptations that come with prosperity. We should run away from those things, and pursue holiness and good works.


I'm getting ready to go back to college, and I think it's very important to keep this perspective in mind:

Why am I going?

If I'm going and getting a degree so I can get rich and have the successes of this world, then I'm going to be sorry. I'll keep the purpose in mind there, to be following after righteousness instead.
