6Of course, there is great gain in godliness combined with contentment; 7for we brought nothing into the world, so that we can take nothing out of it; 8but if we have food and clothing, we will be content with these. 9But those who want to be rich fall into temptation and are trapped by many senseless and harmful desires that plunge people into ruin and destruction. 10For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil, and in their eagerness to be rich some have wandered away from the faith and pierced themselves with many pains. (1 Timothy 6:6-10, NRSV)
Money is the root of all evil, right?
That is what we all think. Money is an inanimate object. It is not good or evil, that all depends on how we use it.
The verse above actually says the love of money is the root of all evil. Meaning if you love money and use people to get it, then that is evil.
We need to relearn to love people and use things, rather than using people and loving things.
Love as God loved you, unconditionally.
