THE LOVE OF MONEY
For the love of money is the root of all kinds of evil.
1 Timothy 6:10
There are more than 100 common idioms in the English language that have their origin in the Authorized King James Version of the Bible (1611)a testament to the impact of the translation. . Unfortunately, not all phrases taken from the English Bible have been incorporated accurately into English cultural conversation.
One such example is a phrase in 1 Timothy 6:10. "For the love of money is a root of all evil." Too often, it is repeated erroneously: "Money is not the root of all evil". The first error is obvious: It is not money itself but the love of money that is the problem. Money, like fire, is all amoral entity. Its impact, for good or ill, depends on how it is used, not on the thing itself. The second error i more subtle. The original text of the verse says the love of money is the root of "all the evils", not "all evil" Nearly all modern Bible versions translate, "all the evils" as "ll sorts/kinds of evil." So money is not the source of all evil, but love of money can lead to various kinds of evil.
Money is a gift from God. As a steward of His gifts, purpose to use money in a way that leads to all kinds of good,
God has told us He will give us what we can handle. So as stewards we should use our money wisely, helping others, tithing and especially helping the God's children in need. We can never out give God and He will always fill our needs.God bless everyone.
