‘Lust for money brings trouble and nothing but trouble. Going down that path, some lose their footing in the faith completely and live to regret it bitterly ever after.’ 1 Timothy 6:10

How tragically true those words that Paul wrote to young Timothy are! It’s estimated that corruption and fraud costs South Africans more than R100-billion each year. Think of the things we could do with that money!

Paul continues: ‘But you, Timothy, man of God: Run for your life from all this. Pursue a righteous lifea life of wonder, faith, love, steadiness, courtesy.’

Where does a lust for money show itself around you? What can you do to say ‘No!’ to that this week?

1 Timothy 6 here:



Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves; ensure justice for those being crushed. Yes, speak up for the poor and helpless, and see that they get justice. (Proverbs 31v8)

Sometimes all it takes for things to change is people to start making some noise about it. Here’s a cool quote from Desmond Tutu: ‘If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor. If an elephant has its foot on the tail of a mouse and you say that you are neutral, the mouse will not appreciate your neutrality.’

What if those who are corrupt got an earful from people like you saying: ‘Stop, this is not okay!’
