I feel sad every time I heard this quote; "Money is the root of all evil." Whoever started this wrong quote was either missing the few words before that phrase or had cut it short intently. The accurate verse is found in 1 Timothy 6:10a "For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil." NIV
Money is a blessing from God. Money brings good things if you know how to use it. But it is the love of money that sparks up the bad thoughts and intentions. God gave us money to use it for our own good, but sad to say that some made money their god. Some idolize it in the way that they keep it as much as they can even if somebody in the family is in need. Some just do "everything" to acquire a lot of money. But let us remember, it is God who gave us money. Yes, we worked for it, but it is God who gave the work. Maybe some could disagree with me, but everything we have, even our breath comes from God.
If you got a lot of money, be grateful to God. Enjoy your money because that is a blessing from God. If He touches your heart to help others, do so unselfishly. And if you got no money, don't worry; "Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said, 'Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you." Hebrews 13:5 NIV
