1 Timothy 6:6-10

Now there is great gain in godliness with contentment, 7 for we brought nothing into the world, and we cannot take anything out of the world. 8 But if we have food and clothing, with these we will be content. 9 But those who desire to be rich fall into temptation, into a snare, into many senseless and harmful desires that plunge people into ruin and destruction. 10 For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evils. It is through this craving that some have wandered away from the faith and pierced themselves with many pangs.

Summary

In 1 Tim. 6:6-10, Paul uncovers the irony that godliness is a means of gain, just not the financial gain that the false teachers wanted. He goes on to address his concern that the church desire spiritual prosperity rather than this world's riches.
