1 Timothy 6:10

 
For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil, for which some have strayed from the faith in their greediness, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.
1 Timothy 6:10

Money in and of itself is not what is evil but it's the love of money that is evil. Paul warns Timothy the love of money will cause you to do all sorts of wicked and evil things. For one, it will cause you to stray away from your faith. Jesus says in Matthew 6 on the Sermon on the Mount, "No one can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other…" Your faith is the first one to go. Do you serve God or do you serve money? You can't do both.

Your greediness will bring trouble your way. When you love money and it's the only thing that matters to you, you begin to bend the rules. Which is why your faith is the first to go. You cut corners and begin to cheat others, which brings troubles. It could be in their greediness that a marriage comes to divorce. It could be that in their greediness, the law catches up to them and they end up serving time. Whatever the case may be, the love of money will drive you to do evil things, resulting in sorrows.

What drives you? Is it the love of money and more of it? Or is it the love of God unto good works?
