Christian Devotional – June 17, 2019

Act rich. There is a way that rich people should act. Paul starting giving Timothy instructions for the wealthy yesterday and he continues today. Read 1 Timothy 6:18.

Instruct them to do good, to be rich in good works, to be generous and ready to share,

People who are followers of Jesus Christ and that God gas blessed with wealth. They need to know how to act rich. Here, Paul tells them to do good, be rich in good works and be generous. That is how someone who is rich should act.

Interestingly, even people who do not have a lot of money can act that way. Money becomes a tool that just helps people to become more and more generous. Learning how to act rich is worthwhile and of greater blessing than just being rich. Are we rich in good works and generous, no matter what actual financial wealth God has blessed us with?
