“Once you let your desire for greater success turn into greed, you are stunting your ability to reach your full potential.”
For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evils. It is through this craving that some have wandered away from the faith and pierced themselves with many pangs.
(1 Timothy 6:10 ESV)
What’s our standard?
Do we worry more about our bank account or our giving account?
Wealth is not a problem for God. Rich people can find salvation just as poor people can.
The opposite is true, also. The rich can be distracted by their money, just like the poor.
Read the verse like it’s written. For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evils. Not having money, but loving it.
When our desire for money consumes us, we lose sight of God and the good He wishes us to do. Kindness to others, generosity, and material support of the local church fall to the wayside. Christ must be our focus, so that God can bring out our full potential in Him.
