Scripture Reading: 1 Timothy 6:10-12. Certainly, the love of money is the root of all kinds of evil. Some people who have set their hearts on getting rich have wandered away from the Christian faith and have caused themselves a lot of grief. 11. But you, man of God, must avoid these things. Pursue what God approves of: a godly life, faith, love, endurance, and gentleness. 12. Fight the good fight for the Christian faith. Take hold of everlasting life to which you were called and about which you made a good testimony in front of many witnesses.

Pray: Forgive us, Father, for valuing our material possessions, above you. They have become our idols. Give us hearts of of love to care more for the poor and needy than accumulating more earthly wealth. Give us instead a treasure in heaven that never loses its value! Amen.
