Jesus and Your His Money

The Investment Principle 

  • A Life of Flight
  • A Life of Pursuit
  • A Life in God 

 Questions for Further Study or Group Discussion:

  1. Read 1 Timothy 6:2b-19. What is Paul’s main concern? How can someone use “godliness” for personal gain (v. 5)?
  2. Why does Paul say “the love of money” is the root of all evil instead of “money is the root of all evil”? Why is this distinction so important?
  3. According to verse 11, what are we to flee? What are we to pursue? What do these look like practically in our lives?
  4. Why does Paul speak about the “good fight of the faith”? What is the “fight”? How does Paul instruct the rich to fight in verses 17-19?
  5. Paul seems to be on a tangent in verses 15 & 16. Why does he turn to praise of God in the middle of his warning and instruction?  

Memory Verse of the Week:

1 Timothy 6:10 For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evils. It is through this craving that some have wandered away from the faith and pierced themselves with many pangs. (ESV)
