Slaves should honor their masters, especially if the masters are Christian. Paul instructs Timothy to withdraw himself from people who misuse God’s word. Such individuals infect the air with germs of envy, controversy, bad-mouthing, and suspicious rumors. Eventually there is an epidemic of backstabbing, and truth is but a distant memory. They think religion is a way to make a fast buck. On the other hand, godliness with contentment is great gain.
1 Timothy 6:7-8 For we brought nothing into the world, and we can take nothing out of it. But if we have food and clothing, we will be content with that.The love of money is the root of all evil. Those on a pursuit to get rich fall into temptation and a trap and finally get destroyed.
Paul advises Timothy to flee from all those and instead pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience and gentleness. Fight the good fight of faith, and lay hold on eternal life.
1 Timothy 6:11-12 But you, man of God, flee from all this, and pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, endurance and gentleness. Fight the good fight of the faith. Take hold of the eternal life to which you were called when you made your good confession in the presence of many witnesses.The rich should not be arrogant, nor put their hope in wealth - instead put their hope in God. They should be told to do good deeds and be generous.
Once again, Paul charges Timothy to stay faithful, turning away from those false teachings which lead people away from true faith. Paul closes his letter with a prayer that God's grace be with him.
