1 Timothy 6:9-10
V 10 For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evils, It is thought this craving that some have wandered away from the faith and pierced themselves with many pangs
Is money bad? This is a question many people get caught up in. No, money isn’t bad; it is to a great degree necessary to life and to ministry. However, the love of money is bad, but it’s not alone. The love of or pursuit of anything except righteousness, godly character, God’s will for our lives, godly wisdom, any number of things I could name, is “a root of evil.” Do not be deceived just because you “say” that the love of money is not in you does not mean that the root of evil can not be found. Satan uses many snares to entrap us; money is just one of them.
