Pursue The Right Things
But you, O man of God, flee these things and pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, gentleness. (1 Timothy 6:11 NKJV)
Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, to which you were also called and have confessed the good confession in the presence of many witnesses. (1 Timothy 6:12 NKJV)
Pursue peace with all people, and holiness, without which no one will see the Lord (Hebrews 12:14 NKJV)
The good fight of faith is about pursuing righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience and gentleness. It is about manifesting and producing the fruits of the Holy Spirit.
Unfortunately, some false teachers have twisted the Bible to give Scriptures, meanings that are different from the original meaning.
God hears the righteous, so if your walk is right with God and you are bearing fruits for Him, all other things will be added to you. If you seek and pursue the right things like righteousness, love, gentleness, faith and patience you will not have to seek and pursue a perverted version of faith that teaches you how to worship, mammon, money, pleasure and prosperity.
Worship of God is completely different from worship of prosperity. God wants you to be prosperous but not at the expense of the health of your soul and being filled with the fruits of the Holy Spirit. We were commanded to seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness but we were not commanded to seek prosperity and all other things. God is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him not those who diligently seek prosperity but do not seek God. God is faithful and He answers prayers but we should not act like pagans.
May we seek righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience and gentleness. May great grace be upon us in Jesus name.

No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.
Matthew 6:24 (KJV)
Thanks for the Scripture. “Ye cannot serve God and mammon,” amen.
And ye shall serve the Lord your God, and he shall bless thy bread, and thy water; and I will take sickness away from the midst of thee.
Exodus 23:25 (KJV)
Amen, when we serve Him, He will bless our bread and take sickness away from our midst. What a mighty God we serve 🙏
