Devotion for August 31

1 Timothy 6:11 NIV

“But you, man of God, flee from all this, and pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, endurance and gentleness.”

Paul, in verses 1-10, warns us that those who choose not to believe in Jesus will drag us into controversies and arguments. They are of the world. Those who seek money and riches over God and righteousness will never be content. It is really simple. Wake up, keep God in focus. Do not allow the world to consume your interest. Do not, however, ignore injustice, poverty, and strife when there is something to be done.

Lead others toward God through Christ by example and encouragement. These things are fulfilling in and of themselves
