“RICH IN GOOD DEEDS”
Mike Teel, Pastor
Focal Passage: I Timothy 6:17-19 17Command 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. 18Command them to do good, to be rich in good deeds, and to be generous and willing to share. 19In this way they will lay up treasure for themselves as a firm foundation for the coming age, so that they may take hold of the life that is truly life.
“What you do with your money and time reveals what you value in your heart.”
Matthew 6:21... For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.
Don’t Be Rich In The Wrong Way
