THE LOVE OF MONEY IS A ROOT OF ALL SORTS OF EVIL

LOVE-personal attachment; friend, associate

MONEY-silver, vessels, images of god

ROOT-something that develops, offspring, sprout

EVIL-bad nature, mode of thinking

“But those who want to get rich fall into temptation and a snare and many foolish and harmful desires which plunge men into ruin and destruction.  For the love of money is a root of all sorts of evil, and some by longing for it have wandered away from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs.”
(1 Tim. 6:9-10)

Money is a powerful instrument for good and evil, to be a blessing or a curse.  A believer must understand and respect both realities in order to handle his finances for the glory of God.  To avoid money’s potential blessings or neglect its dangers is equally naïve.  Many Christians have a one-sided view of this dichotomy, while the Bible clearly advocates balance.  It has always surprised me that many churches only teach the ills of money and then wonder why their congregation shows such a lack of responsibility and generosity in their financial management.  The believer must be aware of all of money’s potential in order to evade its evils yet harness its power for blessing.
 

For no one can lay any foundation other than the one already laid, which is Jesus Christ. 1 Cor 3:12
