1 Timothy 6:17-19

Context

6:17 Command those who are rich in this world’s goods 1  not to be haughty or to set their hope on riches, which are uncertain, 2  but on God who richly provides us with all things for our enjoyment. 6:18 Tell them to do good, 3  to be rich in good deeds, to be generous givers, sharing with others. 4  6:19 In this way they will save up 5  a treasure for themselves as a firm foundation 6  for the future and so lay hold of 7  what is truly life.
