121/365: Money Doesn't Own You

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.  ~ 1 Timothy 6:10

Money and possessions are the second most referenced topic in the Bible. Debt is never described as a positive thing. But money and debt seem to be a part of daily life.

So take note, money isn't the root of evil... it's the LOVE of money which is the root.  

In the same way - the lack of money is not the root of all worries, either. It's the LUST for money you don't have which causes anxiety, worry, and grief. 

Live within your paycheck and hang on to extra funds so you can bless others who are in need - including your family.  This will give you control over your household and rob evil of it's leverage.

May God continue to be your first pursuit.
