Unhealthy Cravings

I Timothy 6:3-10

In most ways we decide what we allow our minds to consider true. This can produce sound patterns of believing and living or cause us to pursue unhealthy false teachings that generate controversy.  Approaching life with greater contentment with the truth of God and the life you have been given is extremely valuable.
