Root of All Evil

What is the root of all evil? The Bible plainly tell us that the love of money is the root of all evil. It doesn't say that money is but that the love of money is. 1 Timothy 6:10 You may say that you don't love money. But do you love the things that money can provide: Clothes, cars, houses, vacations, etc. ? My thing is the security that money provides. My family lives a modest lifestyle.
However living week to week. Not even paycheck to paycheck because when you are self-employed you can't on a paycheck. You learn to live by faith. Sometimes my faith is stronger than others. I admit this one area that I struggle in. When things are really tight. I get anxious. I know that God's Word tells me to "Cast on all my care upon Him for He cares for me." 1 Peter 5:7.
God teaches me this over and over again. I remember when we first started in business 22 yrs ago. God gave me the Scripture in Matthew 6 that if He takes care of the lilies of the field and the birds of the air , He will take care of me . Friends, He has not failed to do so. So why do I let things like money or the lack thereof bother me? My God is faithful.
I saw this video today. I thought you might enjoy it and just see how Satan uses money to discourage us.

  1. Great video! And I loved your thoughts on this topic Linda. I've been in that anxious place lately. I don't think many people love money purely for the sake of money, but you're right that each of us tends to 'love' the things money provides for us - the security, cars, houses, etc - each person has their own thing. And He IS SO FAITHFUL.
