Devotional: The Love Of Money
Christian Devotional about our attitude towards money
"...But those who crave to be rich fall into temptation
and a snare and into many foolish (useless, godless)
and hurtful desires that plunge men into ruin and
destruction and miserable perishing. For the love
of money is a root of all evils; it is through this
craving that some have been led astray and have
wandered from the faith and pierced themselves
through with many acute [mental] pangs..." -
1 Timothy 6:9-10 (AMPC)
Why crave for something we're not able to take
with us when we die. After all, it only has
worldly value. Money in itself is not evil,
but rather the attitude toward it is. The
'love' of money is the 'root of all evil.
God sees the motives of the heart. The desire
to be rich with worldly riches snuffs out any
potential that we have in being used of God -
because we cannot be fully focused on God.
We cannot serve both God and money!
I will not allow money to master me,
For I can't take it with me into eternity.
