The theme this year for our Equipping Verses is The Believer’s Delight. So far we have memorized Psalm 1:1-2

Blessed is the man
who walks not in the counsel of the wicked,
nor stands in the way of sinners,
nor sits in the seat of scoffers;
2 but his delight is in the law[b] of the Lord,
and on his law he meditates day and night.

and Mathew 6:19-21

19 “Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal, 20 but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. 21 For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.

For May we are working on I Timothy 6:11

11 But as for you, O man of God, flee these things. Pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, steadfastness, gentleness.

“flee these things” refers to verse 10

For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evils. It is through this craving that some have wandered away from the faith and pierced themselves with many pangs

We are to flee from the love of money and all the evils that such love will give us. Believers can do so much better than chase after money. It is a cheap, temporary thrill. God offers us so much more, beginning with the forgiveness of sins and ending with eternity in glory with Him. Let’s not rob ourselves with money.
