"For the love of money is at the root of all kinds of evil. And some people, craving money, have wandered from the faith and pierced themselves with many sorrows." (1 Timothy 6:10)
Money is essential for living life as we know it and yet it can trip us
up if we are not careful. Notice that it's not money itself that is the
problem but the "love of money". I think that's why it's a good idea
to hold financial resources loosely in our hands. We are to be generous
givers, allowing money to slip easily through our fingers. The danger,
of course, is that we will replace trust in God with trust in money.
Today, look for an opportunity to bless someone. Perhaps we can sacrifice in order to be answered prayer in someone's life.
