God richly provides us with everything to enjoy if we will live to enjoy Him first.

Main point summary
Timothy, do two things: instruct the wealthy to humble themselves and set their hope on God, living in light of eternity and guard your faith by keeping sound doctrine.
1 Timothy 6:17-21
As for the rich in a this present age, charge them b not to be haughty,
nor c to set their hopes on d the uncertainty of riches,
but on God,
e who richly provides us with everything to enjoy.
They are to do good,
f to be rich in good works,
to be generous
and g ready to share,
thus h storing up treasure for themselves as a good foundation for the future,
so that they may i take hold of j that which is truly life.
O Timothy, guard the deposit entrusted to you.
k Avoid the l irreverent babble
and contradictions of what is falsely called “knowledge,”
for by professing it
some have swerved from the faith.
m Grace be with you. 1
