1. The Love Of Money

1Timothy 6:9-12    But those who want to get rich fall into temptation and a snare and many foolish and harmful desires which plunge men into ruin and destruction. 

(10) For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil, for which some have strayed from the faith in their greediness, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.  

Greed and lust  is a form of the deadly sin of  because it involves the desire for more than one has earned.   because it involves the desire for things one cannot have.  because it involves the desire for things other people have. 

The love the Money, second Bible,  is viewed as the root of all evil. Some believe that money is the root of all evil because it can lead to greed,  can be  leads to selfishness and cost in human suffering resulting from its misuse. 

It can also lead to the desire to take advantage of others. When this happens, it can also lead to the desire to hurt others when others get in the way of one's own desires. This can lead to the desire to do harm to others and to society as a whole.

  • Those who want to get rich= Those who love money
  • Those who love money = The greedy
  • The love of money = “a root of all kinds of evil” (NKJV)
  • Corrupted with Money= Compromise – More Evil

2. Instructions to the Rich

1Timothy 6:17-19  Instruct those who are rich in this present world not to be conceited or to fix their hope on the uncertainty of riches, but on God, who richly supplies us with all things to enjoy.

 (18)  Instruct them to do good, to be rich in good works, to be generous and ready to share,  

(19)  storing up for themselves the treasure of a good foundation for the future, so that they may take hold of that which is life indeed.

When used selfishly, money can become a source of evil. Therefore, it is important to know the difference between using money for good and using it for evil.

It is also a tool that can be used for good. For example, money can be used to help people in need. However, the danger with this is that it can also be used selfishly to explory other desires. When used selfishly, money can become a root of evil. 

You can rich, but:

  • Don’t be conceited= “highminded”(KJV)
  • Don’t Fix your hope on the uncertainty of riches
  • God gave it to enjoy
  • Be rich in good works
  • Be generous and ready to share
  • Think about the future- Eternity
  • Do good to all men-Gal. 6:10
  • Give to the needy-Eph. 4:28
  • Visit-Jas. 1:27
  • Compassion to brother in need-I Jn. 3:17-18
  • C ompassion on all-Lk. 10:30-36

3. Priorities

1Timothy 6:8 

And having food and clothing, with these we shall be content.

Example When There is No Need

2  Thessalonians 3:7-9  For you yourselves know how you ought to follow us, for we were not disorderly among you;  

(8)  nor did we eat anyone's bread free of charge, but worked with labor and toil night and day, that we might not be a burden to any of you,

When people started to focus on their own self-interest instead of the greater good, view of money as the root of all evil was born.

Some fail to realize that there is the Lord’s money and our money-

Acts 5:4-Once it is given who does it belong to?

We are responsible for its use while it belongs to us

The Lord’s money is to be used as the Lord has instructed-Not as we would like to use it

As Christians we need to develop the right attitude toward money In order to do so we must look at what the Bible teaches concerning it
