1 Timothy 6:7-11

"For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out.
And having food and raiment let us be therewith content.
But they that will be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition.
For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.
But thou, O man of God, flee these things; and follow after righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, meekness."
1 Timothy 6:7-11

A good passage to remind us what is important today.  Let's be happy with the wealth of blessings that the Lord has granted us.  We have so much.  Life, relationships, a place to sleep, good food... sight.  Internet connections. :)  SO much. :)  Let's be grateful for all of it today.  Instead of worrying about how to become billionaires, let's work on some of those skills listed in the last verse of this selection.  Love, faith, patience, etc.  The things that matter... the things that we can take with us. :)
