I Timothy 6:9-10 ” People who want to get rich fall into temptation and a trap and into many foolish and harmful desires that plunge men into ruin and destruction. For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil. Some people, eager for money, have wandered from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs.”

Be careful not to misquote this Scripture, for it doesn’t say that money is the root of all kinds of evil, but rather, the love of money that will cause a frenzied lust and crazed passion in a person, blocking out their better judgment. When we allow ourselves to become a lover of money and not a lover of Jesus Christ…when we take Him off the Throne of our heart, mind and soul and place obtaining wealth there instead, we set ourselves up for every kind of forbidden and unrighteous action to take place. And in the end, we may think we’ve acquired our heart’s desire…but at what cost?
