“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” (1 Timothy 6:10)
The acquisition of excess money presents opportunities to do good and evil. Whatever was in you before having loads of money will manifest when you have loads of it. If good then good will manifest…
People complicate the issue of money, even making out that money itself is evil. That’s far to simplistic and misses the context that money devalues over time to a point where certain denominations are worthless.
Money is not evil. The love of money is evil.
“A feast is made for laughter, wine makes life merry, and money is the answer for everything” (Ecclesiastes 10:19). This verse previously confused the life out of me, however in our “modern” lives, money is required literally for every-thing. From the home to utilities and local taxation, money is the answer to every thing.
So, money has a place in life, that’s a given. The choice to “love” money is one that we make as individuals. Choose to love God and use money rather than the other way around.
