Verse of the Day: Pursuing Righteousness Rather than Riches

By Administrator 02-13-2007

But those who want to be rich fall into temptation and are trapped by many senseless and harmful desires that plunge people into ruin and destruction. For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil, and in their eagerness to be rich some have wandered away from the faith and pierced themselves with many pains.

But as for you, follower of God, shun all this; pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, endurance, gentleness.

- 1 Timothy 6:9-11
