What we love most we pursue hardest. Click To Tweet
For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil. Some people, eager for money, have wandered from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs.
Today’s verse is a powerful reminder that loving money will lead us to “many griefs” at minimum, and wandering from the faith at worst.
Paul was writing to Timothy about people who thought that godliness was a means of financial gain. The kind of people who take advantage of their influence in people’s lives to make money.
So, one of the warning signs for us is when we value money more than people. When it becomes okay for us to use them for our own gain. Or when we see them as wallets before souls.
