Thought for the Day

Who says the love of money is not the root of all evil?
1 Timothy 6:9-10(The Message)
But if it’s only money these leaders are after, they’ll self-destruct in no time. Lust for money brings trouble and nothing but trouble. Going down that path, some lose their footing in the faith completely and live to regret it bitterly ever after.

Do not put your faith in money, put your faith in the God that is the Provider! He will provide even when the money is gone! He makes a way where there seems to be no way possible! God is God! He can do anything.

  1. Thank you for this message, Amy. You know, there are some who condemn those who have been blessed with lots of money, but I believe that the Lord desires us to prosper not only spiritually, but also financially. That is why it is important to remember that it is the LOVE of money that is the root of all evil. It’s not money that is evil…it’s the LOVE of money. It is sad to see when one allows the spirit of greed to take over them. I’ve seen it happen in churches and in businesses.

    I know that if I had lots of money that my deepest desire is to help others who have less. I would love to be able to just give to those who are less fortunate whenever I want. But to be honest, none of us know what is really buried deep inside of us except the Lord. How do I know that if I was blessed with a lot of money, that I wouldn’t become greedy? Would I be able to withstand that spirit of greediness? I hope I would. I’ve seen some very serious and sincere people fall by the wayside, that I never thought would, when it came to money. Thanks again for this message from God’s Word.
