Do You Love Money?

“For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil, for which some have strayed from the faith in their greediness, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.”

1 Timothy 6:10

Money is neither good nor bad. It's either master or servant—however we make it. But the love of money is the root of all kinds of evil.

When a man says, “I will haste to get rich; rather than seek God, I will seek the things of this world,” it warps his life and distorts his values. It's amazing what the love of money and the things of this world will do to someone. Those who chase money lose their discretion. No matter how much they have in the bank, they are impoverished if the goal of their lives is to be rich and famous.
