Life that is truely LIFE
“Helping People Fulfill God’s Plan For Their Lives Through Business”
Life that is Truly Life
A Generous Life is a Life that is truly Life. There are two commands: what to do and what not to do. There are six principles in these verses which lead to the firm foundation of the Treasures in which Life is truly life.
17 Command those who are rich in this present world not to be arrogant
□ nor to put their hope in wealth, which is so uncertain,
□ but to put their hope in God,
□ who richly provides us with everything for our enjoyment.
18 Command them
□ to do good,
□ to be rich in good deeds, and
□ to be generous and
□ willing to share.
19 In this way they will lay up treasure for themselves as a firm foundation for the coming age,
they may take hold of the life that is truly life.
1 Timothy 6:17-19
The contrast of what not to do is not put hope in wealth and be arrogant (self-confident). This is when we trust the uncertain treasures of this world more than the certain wisdom of God. We trust in the created more than the Creator. We trust in what we can see more than what we don’t see.
Storing up treasure which is a firm foundation can only be found in the certainty of Trusting in God, putting our “hope in God,” putting our confidence in HIS PROVISION to meet all our needs “who richly provides us with everything for our enjoyment.”
God loved and GAVE so that we could have LIFE. God’s love redeemed mankind from the pit of destruction of selfishness, pride, arrogance, self-confidence, and trusting in the wealth of this world to a LIFE that is Truly LIFE.
Jesus said in Luke 12:15 “Watch out! Be on your guard against all kinds of greed; life does not consist in an abundance of possessions.”
The Generous Life that is willing to share leads to the firm foundation treasure of the “Life that is Truly Life.” We are “GENEROUS LOVE AGENTS” giving generously to further HIS KINGDOM. Receiving God’s love allows us to be generous and have the “Life that is Truly Life.”
