With these we will be content

"Now there is great gain in godliness with contentment, for we brought nothing into the world, and we cannot take anything out of the world. But if we have food and clothing, with these we will be content. 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 . . .

"As for you, O man of God, flee these things. Pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, steadfastness, gentleness. Fight the good fight of the faith. Take hold of the eternal life to which you were called and . . . keep the commandment unstained and free from reproach until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ, which He will display at the proper time."

-1 Timothy 6:6-15a

  1. Thanks for stopping by my new place--always glad to hear people praise Mr. Chubchub. =) Those vanilla nuts sound SO good! I'm considering a Costco run just for the ingredients. Yum.
