Timothy 6: 2- 12

6:2 But those who have believing masters, let them not despise them because they are brothers, but rather serve them all the more because they are believing and beloved, participants of the same
service. Teach and exhort these things.
6:3 If anyone teaches otherwise, and does not consent to the sound words of our Lord Jesus Christ, and to that doctrine which is in accord with piety,
6:4 then he is arrogant, knowing nothing, yet languishing amid the questions and quarrels of words. From these arise envy, contention, blasphemy, evil suspicions:
6:5 the conflicts of men who have been corrupted in mind and deprived of truth, who consider profit to be piety.
6:6 But piety with sufficiency is great gain.
6:7 For we brought nothing into this world, and there is no doubt that we can take nothing away.
6:8 But, having nourishment and some kind of covering, we should be content with these.
6:9 For those who want to become rich fall into temptation and into the snare of the devil and into many useless and harmful desires, which submerge men in destruction and in perdition.
6:10 For desire is the root of all evils. Some persons, hungering in this way, have strayed from the faith and have entangled themselves in many sorrows.
6:11 But you, O man of God, flee from these things, and truly pursue justice, piety, faith, charity, patience, meekness.
6:12 Fight the good fight of faith. Take hold of the eternal life to which you have been called, and make a good profession of faith in the sight of many witnesses.


Luke 8: 1- 3

8:1 And it happened afterwards that he was making a journey through the cities and towns, preaching and evangelizing the kingdom of God. And the twelve were with him,
8:2 along with certain women who had been healed of evil spirits and infirmities: Mary, who is called Magdalene, from whom seven demons had departed,
8:3 and Joanna, the wife of Chuza, Herod’s steward, and Susanna, and many other women, who were ministering to him from their resources.
