Bible Reading: I Timothy 6:10-21
Key Verse: Verse 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.”
Key Words: For the love of money
In a recent survey money ranks with love as man’s greatest source of joy. What a shame!
Raymond McHenry writes: “What would you be willing to do for $10 million? From survey results found in The Day America Told the Truth, one of four respondents would abandon their entire family, twenty-three percent said they would become a prostitute for a week, sixteen percent noted they would leave their spouse, and three percent confided they would put their children up for adoption.
Sergio Hernandez, twenty-eight, was arrested and charged with stealing television sets and other electronics during the 1992 rioting in Los Angeles. This appears rather strange for a man who won $3 million in the 1989 California lottery. Kathleen Pizzi was a restaurant hostess when she won a $3.2 million jackpot in the 1985 Connecticut lottery. In 1992, Miss Pizzi wound up facing attorneys in a Palm Beach, Florida, bankruptcy court. Many folks seem to think money is the cure-all to their problems.”
What a shame that man has known the truth of I 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”, yet men still love money more than God. What a shame!
What to do:
✞ Love God and others, and use money; but when you love money, you will use God and others for personal gain.
