In this episode, Chara and Peter discuss why so many of us take 1 Timothy 6:10 out of context and grab onto it as truth.

What they cover:
1. What the text actually says, and how God wants us to view money.
2. Why we make an idol out of money (security, influence, status)
3. Why we matter apart from our money
4. How to think about poverty
5. God’s call for us to care for our families through financial means
6. The poverty and prosperity gospels, and why they’re both wrong
7. What success actually looks like for a Christian

Verses referenced: 1 Timothy 6:9-10, Proverbs 18:11, 1 Timothy 5:8, Psalm 1,

Books referenced: Every Good Endeavor by Timothy Keller
