1 Timothy 6:10,11
For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.
But thou, O man of God, flee these things; and follow after righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, meekness.
I think it is interesting that wealth itself is not said to be evil only the love of money. The love of money catches your emotions away. After all the Bible also says that where your treasure is there will your heart be also. Now you can have wealth and that not be your treasure (that is of course very rare). We must seek after godly things not worldly things! We get so caught up in possessions that we go in debt over our heads and then have to work every hour we can to survive which robs us of our peace, joy, our health and of course time with our loved ones. Remember friends to see ye first the kingdom of Heaven and all these other things will be added unto you.
