1 Timothy 6:2b-10
Consider how beneficial it is when a man, though possessing sufficient income, is able both to avoid financial difficulty and to give assistance to those in need…Thus, riches that benefit our neighbours as well are not to be thrown away. They lie at hand, ready to be employed as material and instruments for good use – to those who recognize them as such.
Christianity “takes money, the very embodiment of power of sense of this world, with its self-interest, its covetousness, and its pride, and changes it into an instrument for God’s service and glory” (Murray 16).
