Love of Money – 1 Timothy 6:10

For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil. Some people, eager for money, have wandered from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs.

First, let it be known that it’s not money that is the root of all evil. It’s the love of money. Big difference. The question for us should be “What is the love of money?”

I know that may sound like a silly question, however, I can’t help but wonder what Paul considered the “love of money” was. Very few believers would consider themselves a lover of money. However, is that really the case? Let’s not forget Yeshua’s caution in Luke 12:15.

Luke 12:15 - Then he said to them, “Watch out! Be on your guard against all kinds of greed; a man’s life does not consist in the abundance of his possessions.”

So do you follow Yeshua’s words to be on guard against it? Paul said that some have wandered from the faith because of the love of money. I think the issue for all of us is to search down deep into our hearts to see whether or not we really do have a love of money within us. And remember, you don’t have to have money to love it.

Let this be a focus in your time of meditation throughout the day. Until next time, Shalom.

Love YHVH your God with ALL your heart.

Easy to say, very thankful for Yeshua's blood when we fail Him!

God is more than worthy of His due. We are born into a money loving society, it's difficult giving it all up to Him. Thank Yeshua for His mercy and kindness.

"Follow the money"....this is so true about everything that is worldly! We however still live in this world and we must trust in Him to provide for us!
