Wesley's Notes for 1 Timothy 6:7


6:7 Neither can we carry anything out - To what purpose, then, do we heap together so many things? O, give me one thing, - a safe and ready passage to my own country!


People's Bible Notes for 1 Timothy 6:7


1Ti 6:7 For we brought nothing into [this] world. See Job 1:21. [And it is] certain we can carry nothing out. Since we must leave the earth as we came into it, contentment and an immortal hope are better than earthly gains.

    I tell you the truth, every time We (I) think God is being silent, for reasons He knows; He comes along and say, show, or do something so mind blowing, until the mind can't comprehend at all.
    And that's when the Holy Spirit comes in so pronounced with the Holy revelation of all the natural mind had to just step aside. I now am lifted to clarity and a much needed refreshing.
  • John abongo
    To me, i think serving God pays. Because God says do this and he will this for you.

    Contentment is resting in who you are, who you have and what you have. If you know you have Christ then there is a hope of glory so you will not be anxious and you will be free from worry. For with Him you are more than the wealthiest man. I pray that we know who we are in Christ Jesus. Amen

    BY FAITH Jesus ENDURED EVERY PAIN AND DISAPPOINTMENT FROM MAN CAUSE HE NEW HIS FATHER WAS GOOD AND FAITHFUL! THATS WHY WE AS BELIEVERS TODAY MUST FIGHT THIS GOOD FIGHT BECAUSE JESUS FOUGHT FOR OUR SALVATION! BUT WE MUST FIGHT WITH FAITH IN OUR GOD IN HEAVEN! WE CANT FIGHT BY SIGHT CAUSE SIGHT WILL CAUSE US TO GIVE UP AND WORRY OURSELVES TO DEATH! BY FAITH OUR MARRIAGES WILL BE STRONG, BY FAITH THAT NEW JOB IS COMING, BY FAITH OUR BODIES WILL BE HEALED, BY FAITH OUR FINANCES WILL BE STRONG, BY FAITH WE WILL BE ABLE TO LOVE OUR ENEMIES, BY FAITH WE WILL BE ABLE TO FORGIVE, AND BY FAITH WE WILL HAVE ETERNAL LIFE! IF U FEEL LIKE GIVEN UP TODAY JUST KEEP FIGHTING THE GOOD FIGHT OF FAITH CAUSE HE WILL MAKE A WAY OUT OF NO WAY! NOW UNTO HIM WHO IS ABLE TO KEEP US FROM FALLING AMEN! GLORY BE TO GOD!!!
  • MockingBird for verse 10
    The LOVE of the money is the root of ALL evil : Money is not evil : The LOVE of it is : When we I seek the face of God of where the money should go and how to handle and obey His leading then we I will prosper : Make me neither rich nor poor : But to live in such a way that pleases my Lord God Almighty that provides all for us me.
  • Marilyn Stevens for verse 10
    If a person places their desire to have more money first in their lives, they are choosing not to put God first. When this happens their minds loose focus on God's will for their lives. Their focus is then easily pulled towards evil easy ways to obtain more money.
