I'm sure you have heard of the saying "Money is the root of all evil." Well that saying is wrong! Money is not the root of all evil, it is a necessity to live in this world. The correct saying is actually in the Bible, 1 Timothy 6:10(ESV), "For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evils. It is through this craving that some have wandered away from the faith and pierced themselves with many pangs." (Some versions say stabbed themselves with many pains). It is the love of money that is what is evil. Even if you aren't a Christ follower this will still apply to you. Look at all the people of this world who will do anything for money...what usually happens to them?
Money is an idol that tempts many. Please look at how important money is to you. Do you spend, spend, spend because you think it will give you the respect you deserve? Or spend to try and please others? Is it really filling that void? How you spend your money determines if you will win or lose at the money game.
Here is the 1 truth to having money...give some of that money to those in need (just like the video said!). It can change your perspective and your life for the better. Before you know it, you will have more money! Luke 6:38 (ESV) says, "Give, and it will be given to you. Good measure, pressed down, shaken together, running over, will be put into your lap. For with the measure you use it will be measured back to you.” Give and it will be given to you! Love ya!
