1 Timothy 6:10 For the love of money is the root of all evil.

We have seen this play out in life many times with many people. The root. All kind of evil begins with the love of money. There was a song from the 70s that talked about the love of money. People will do all kinds of heinous things to acquire it. Unthinkable things, unmentionable things, unimaginable things. They will steal, kill, lie and sell their soul for it. But here in this passage of scripture we see the answer. The answer is having godly character which means being selfless and caring for others and being content. Now there is nothing wrong with dreams, ambitions and desires. There is nothing wrong with wanting to have more money for the right reasons. As long as money does not have you. We cannot make it an idol or become a slave to it. God takes care of our needs and gives us our desires if we allow Him to do so. We cannot take any of our possessions with us and besides there is eternal life to gain. Imagine the beauty of God’s kingdom. This is where our hearts should lie.

A vision of holiness

Entreating my heart

To live in colorfully

In your vivid light

Away from the pull

Under the pressure

Of the good life

The will of my flesh

Desire no more
