The Love of Money is the Root of All Evil

1 Timothy 6:10   For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.

Many years ago I was shown this picture as I studied 1 Timothy 6:10.
Money is a tool, that can be used for great good when its value is understood. We are blessed with many tools to get the job done. Yet, anything that we love more than God is an idol that will cause great sorrow in the time to come if we are not submitted in our choices.

Money is just a tool, not evil in itself. Anything becomes evil by the love of it replacing the love of God in your heart.

Psalm 68:19  Blessed [be] the Lord, [who] daily loadeth us [with benefits, even] the God of our salvation. Selah.

Obviously, God desires to bless us and provide well for us. But things, people, or money are never to usurp God's place in our affections.
