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. (1 Timothy 6:17 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; (1-е Тимофею 6:17 Russian)
O LORD my God ~ thank you dear heavenly Father for granting us life and energy to participate in another Lord’s Day activities of worship that brings honor and glory to our risen Lord Jesus Christ. Help those who deliberately absent themselves from meeting with the church to come home to give and receive the love you have given to us. Give us wisdom so that we are able to know how much is enough and put the excess to good use in the Kingdom of Christ before our time on earth is done. Shame those who only give to needy causes from their surplus in order to receive some tax benefits or earthly glory. Remind us daily Lord that when we breathe that last breath, what we have belongs to someone else. Open our hearts to the cries of those needing to hear the gospel and to poor widows and orphans. In the precious name of Jesus, Amen.
