The Root of All Evil

by Berni Dymet

1Tim. 6:10 For 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.

Maybe you've heard it said that money is the root of all evil. It's an old biblical quote. Well - actually … no.  It's an old biblical miss-quote. Because that's not what it says at all. 

What it actually says is that the love of money is the root of all kinds of evil. You see money itself isn't the problem. It's our love of money that's the problem.

I devoted the first thirty-six years of my life trying to make myself rich. You see, to me it appeared to be an admirable goal. Get rich and you've succeeded. You've made it. Hmm. 

But the more I succeeded at it - the more it … well … it hurt. Looking back on it now, this desire for wealth - is what caused me to wander away from the faith I had in Jesus. It caused me to pierce myself with many pains.

I spent half a lifetime at this, and with every fiber of my being let me tell you this, it just wasn't worth it! Not by a long shot!
