“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.” 1st Timothy 6:10
The Bible says the LOVE of money is the root of ALL evil.
What makes the love of money the root of all evil?
I came to understand this better during this pandemic era.
It amazes me how so many young people who call themselves Christians become servants to money.
They allow themselves to be controlled by money.
They ridiculously attend to errands that ridicules them.
Now read this:
Money is considered to be evil when you who call yourself a Christian, dumped your faith and subdued yourself as a servant to money.
This makes you a new Judas Iscariot; who sold Jesus Christ for money.
Vanity upon vanity, all is vanity, says the Holy Scriptures.
How much is money that you will give in exchange for your life in eternity.
You see that, once you allow yourself to selfishly love money, then, there is no limitation to the atrocities you will commit in the name of money.
Examples of such atrocities are: stealing, internet fraud – that’s ‘Yahoo Yahoo’, using what you have to get what you want – that’s prostitution, involving yourself in rituals e.t.c.
Please, don’t misunderstand me, the Bible doesn’t say that money is evil, the Bible says that “The Love of Money is the root of ALL evil.”
Did you see the emphasis there? The Bible mentioned that ALL evil, meaning that the love of money is the foundation of every other evil. Hope you got that?
Once you LOVE money, then, you’re gone!
Once you LOVE money, then, you’re a betrayal of the Master!
Once you LOVE money, then, there is no limit to whatever evil you will commit.
Once you covet after money, then you’re sure going to err from the faith.
My dear, truth be told; it is not easy but remember; the grace of the Lord is sufficient unto you.
Learn to take your stand where necessary, don’t sell your worth because of a piece of money that won’t pay your transport to eternity, neither will it serve as your visa to eternity.
Love the Master, and money will come your way through His blessings, not you dumping the Master by running after money.
Please answer this question; what happened to Judas Iscariot after he sold the master?
There’s no good end to as many that sell the Master.
Please, make a wise decision today and the Lord will see you through in Jesus name… Amen
I await your testimonies.
