The Love Of Money; The Root Of All Evil

Money is said to answer all things… Just the other day, I heard about a conversation between two senators, while they were talking about the monies that entered their bank accounts. “One asked his fellow senator that do you think we can make heaven with all these monies we are getting? The other answered and said heaven? You still talk about heaven? I lost heaven since I was a local government chairman! His response kept me wondering what could be the worth of the soul of a man.

We live in a time when most people just want to make money at all cost without minding the consequences of what they venture into… All they say is I want to hustle we are in recession period. As a result of this, many had lost their fortune and live savings to ponzi scheme and so many ridiculous scheme, all in the name of making it quick gain.

The good book says that the love of money is the root of all evil.

Little wonder, Jesus said that it will be easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter heaven.

Jesus spoke twice about hell than he spoke about heaven. He spoke twice about money than he spoke about about heaven and hell combined. This is a clear signal that you must not love money than your soul.

Nobody desired to be poor, but we must not allow our quest for money to make us neglect God’s commandment.

Let us not be quick to forget about young man who could not follow Jesus because of his riches… I presume he made his money in a legitimate way, but he loved it too much.

Riches is not a vice, neither is poverty a virtue.

Let me submit by saying, give me neither poverty nor riches; but give me that which is convenience for me.

Shalom!!!
