First Timothy:

This book is a letter from Paul to Timothy, advising him in his ministry:

Paul defines the way Christian men and women should present themselves and the requirements for "an overseer" (bishop; pastor) and deacons (1 Timothy 2,3), also indicating the church's need to take care of widows.

Several of Paul's points on money and wealth:

  1. "For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out." (1 Timothy 6:7, from King James' Version)
  2. "For the love of money is the root of all evil ..." (1 Timothy 6:10, from King James' Version)
  3. "Command those who are rich in this present world not to be arrogant nor to put their hope in wealth, which is so uncertain, but ...in God...Command them to do good, to be rich in good deeds, and to be generous and willing to share. In this way they will lay up treasure for themselves as a firm foundation for the coming age, so that they may take hold of the life that is truly life." (1 Timothy 6:17-19)

Paul instructed that all Christians who are slaves should work hard. (1 Timothy 6:1).
