This and That....I Timothy

Thinking on some verses from I Timothy 6 this morning. (The Message)

"A devout life does bring wealth, but it's the rich simplicity of being yourself before God. Since we entered the world penniless and will leave it penniless, if we have bread on the table and shoes on our feet, that's enough."

And a little later in the chapter.....

"Pursue a righteous life--a life of wonder, faith, love, steadiness, courtesy."
What a wonderful blessing that we can be ourselves before God! Think about often do I try to be something or someone other than who I am? Authenticity is so important. God already knows everything about me- the good, the bad, the ugly as it were! He loves me and accepts me as I am! And, gives me all I need in life. What peace this gives.   I'm focusing on that life of wonder, faith, love, steadiness and courtesy today!   Happy Day, Everyone!
