Paul warns those who think godliness is a means to financial gain.
“Some things are buried in the earth.”

Luke, as well as Matthew, reported this same instruction.
v3 He told them: “Take nothing for the journey—no staff, no bag, no bread, no money, no extra shirt (Lk 9:3 NIV).
Jesus asked the disciples later if going in faith, they lacked anything.
v35 Then Jesus asked them, “When I sent you without purse, bag or sandals, did you lack anything?”
“Nothing,” they answered
(Lk 22.35 NIV).
But godliness with contentment is great gain
(1 Tim:6:3-6 NIV).
