Romans 8:6:

(KJV.)  1 TIMOTHY 6:10

(10)  For the love of money is the root of all evil:  which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.


Brethren, money is an interesting subject of discussion;  from generation to generation, money has been the form of exchanged for objects, goods, services, including human slaves, cf. Genesis 17:12; there is nothing biblically wrong with money;  however, money becomes the root of evil, when, we make it the main focus in life, idolize it, with all our hearts, souls, and bodies, to points whereby we go above and beyond, lose control of ourselves, do whatever possible, to acquire it in excess, never share our blessings with others; in the process of acquiring riches of this world, we lose what is more important to salvation, having close relationship with our Father through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior.

In Paul's letter to his son Timothy, he advised him on issues concerning wealth; saying, For the love of money is the root of all evil;  at times, when we lack monetary resources, we lose sleep over what to do, in other to meet financial obligations in life; on the other hand, there are wealthy people who lose sleep over their riches as well; simply because they aren't sure if the stock market will go up or down suddenly, their lifetime savings may perish with the wind if things go negatively;  therefore, it is important that we rather focus on eternal blessings, that never corrodes or decays, content with everyday blessings of the LORD, for it maketh rich and he addeth no sorrows with it. cf. Proverbs 10:22;  let us not pursue riches of this world,to points, whereby eagerness, overshadows glories of Jesus Christ, to backslide from the faith, into dubious, deceitful ways of the enemy, lose salvation and eternal lives with Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior. Amen and Amen!


(KJV.)  Deuteronomy 16:19  Thou shalt not wrest judgment:  thou shalt not respect persons, neither take a gift:  for a gift doth blind the eyes of the wise, and pervert, the words of the righteous.
