I Timothy 6:17-19
How to grow in the good times
1. Sing for joy! (James 5:13, Psalm 16)
2. Receive good times as a gift. (James 1:16)
He gives to us, not because we deserve it, but because He loves us.
3. Use those times for your spiritual good.
The basic disciplines, like physical exercise, are more beneficial before we realize we've gotten ourselves out of shape.
b. Erect altars and monuments. Make reminders for yourself of what God has done for you.
4. Be stewards of the good times.
Be generous and willing to share what you have, when you have it. (I Timothy 6:18)
