17Command those who are rich in this present world not to be arrogant nor to put their hope in wealth, which is so uncertain, but to put their hope in God, who richly provides us with everything for our enjoyment. 18Command them to do good, to be rich in good deeds, and to be generous and willing to share. 19In this way they will lay up treasure for themselves as a firm foundation for the coming age, so that they may take hold of the life that is truly life. (1 Timothy 6:17-19, NIV)

6:17 你要嘱咐那些今世富足的人,不要自高,也不要倚靠无定的钱财;只要倚靠那厚赐百物给我们
享受的神。6:18 又要嘱咐他们行善,在好事上富足,甘心施舍,乐意供给人,6:19 为自己积成美好的根基,预备将来,叫他们持定那真正的生命。 (提前 6:17-19)
