Let's DO It!

There's a lot of confusion about what constitutes real wealth, and sadly many people (if not most) believe it requires vast amounts of money. But as Paul teaches Timothy,

"Since we entered the world penniless and will leave it penniless, if we have bread on the table and shoes on our feet, that’s enough...Lust for money brings trouble and nothing but trouble. Going down that path, some lose their footing in the faith completely and live to regret it bitterly ever after."

So what is the real "good life" and how do we obtain it? Paul offers guidance for that as well:

"Pursue a righteous life—a life of wonder, faith, love, steadiness, courtesy. Run hard and fast in the faith. Seize the eternal life, the life you were called to, the life you so fervently embraced in the presence of so many witnesses."
