Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, to which you are also called, and have professed a good profession before many witnesses.
All Commentaries on 1 Timothy 6:12 Go To 1 Timothy 6
Ambrose of Milan
Let godliness move you to justice, continence, gentleness, that you may avoid childish acts, and that rooted and grounded in grace you may fight the good fight of faith. Do not entangle yourself in the affairs of this life, for you are fighting for God. For he who fights for the emperor is forbidden by human laws to enter upon lawsuits or do any legal business or sell merchandise. How much more ought he who enters upon the warfare of faith to keep away from every kind of business. Let him be satisfied with the produce of his own little bit of land, if he has it. If he has not that, let him be content with the pay he will get for his service. .
