Encouragement to those living in the lap of luxury

As for the rich in this present age, charge them not to be haughty, nor to set their hopes on the uncertainty of riches, but on God, who richly provides us with everything to enjoy. They are to do good, to be rich in good works, to be generous and ready to share, (1 Timothy 6:17-18 ESV)

Богатых в настоящем веке увещевай, чтобы они не высоко думали о себе и уповали не на богатство неверное, но на Бога живаго, дающего нам всё обильно для наслаждения; чтобы они благодетельствовали, богатели добрыми делами, были щедры и общительны, (1-е Тимофею 6:17-18 Russian)

O LORD God, dear merciful and kind Father in heaven ~ I am putting my trust in your great power and love. Help me to live in a manner pleasing to the way Jesus teaches us through the Scriptures. Grant clear and true wisdom that enables me to understand how to accurately send excess earthly wealth ahead to heaven by doing deeds of kindness. Bless Christians living in poor nations, so they do not lose heart. Let their spiritual joy be an encouragement to those living in the lap of luxury. In the precious name of Jesus, Amen.
