One of the most unreliable things we trust in is money.
We think we can buy happiness with the bigger house or the new car or the new pair of shoes. And when we buy them, we are happy….for a time. And then we get something else on our mind that we think we have to have in order to be happy.
Paul is talking to Timothy about how unreliable money is and that our trust needs to be in God. God gives us everything we need to make us happy.
Then Paul says that rich people need to use their money to do good, being generous with those in need and always being ready to share. By doing this, they will experience true life!
We know that Americans are the richest people on the planet. But how happy are we? How many of us are experiencing true life?
