Learning Godliness

“Having food and raiment, let us be therewith content.” 1 Timothy 6:8
“Godliness with contentment is great gain.” 1 Timothy 6:6
The scriptures tell us to be content with food and raiment, but there’s something even better. The Bible tells us godliness added to contentment is great gain (1Tim. 6:66But godliness with contentment is great gain. (1 Timothy 6:6)). How does one learn godliness? Spending time reading the Bible and praying is a good place to start. That’s where we learn more about God. When you are occupied with something, you become like your object. Occupation with Christ is a sure way to make us godly. “We all, with open face beholding...the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord” (2 Cor. 3:1818But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord. (2 Corinthians 3:18)). We can’t spend our whole day reading our Bibles, normally; but memorizing verses allows us to take the scriptures with us and thus recall them during the day. We can also pray without ceasing as we go about our business. As we live in the awareness of the presence of our God, we will become more like Him.
