Root of Evil

1 Timothy 6:10For the love of money is the root of all kinds of evil. Some people, eager for money, have wandered from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs. (NIV 1978)

My Musing – Money is not the root of evil. There are many wealthy believers and servants of Christ, who have learned to control their lust and greed for more wealth. Rather it is not being able to control this (the love of money) that is the root of all evil.

My Advice – Make sure you keep money and the accumulation of wealth in the proper perspective. Uncontrolled it can destroy careers, relationships and lives. Good stewards, on the other hand, are generally blessed with more wealth because they possess and control it, rather than being possessed and controlled by it.
