Money

Money is essential to us as humans,believe me without money there would have massive problem in the world but what baffles me is that most of us irrespective of class failed to understand the values of money that is why some of us tend to do anything possible for money but that is where my question now come in...

IS MONEY THE ROOT OF ALL EVIL?

NO...

Money is not the root of evil.In fact, God wants us to be rich so how can one be rich without having money?

Money is vital in our lives

Money is important in our existence

Money is a source of happiness

Money brings love

Money helps us to grow


"Without money,my life will be miserable"

The love of money is the main structure that determines if money would be used for good or bad therefore money is not the root of evil...

Money is like every other technology and it has it own spiritual values which motivates our desire to earn or have money...

Why do you have to wake up by 4am to catch the 6am bus for work?

MONEY...

Why do you have to go to school to acquire knowledge which will help you become successful in future?

MONEY...

Some kill for love

Some kill for lust

Some kill for fame

Some kill for lies

Some kill for money

So many cover ups and so many evils yet money is considered the root of all evil but the bottom line is that Money is essential to us like water,food and clothing besides, you cannot attain to certain heights in life if you don't have money.

You cannot get a good house without money

You cannot get a sustainable infrastructures without money

There will never be the presence of basic human amenities without money

Money no matter its form deserves our protection that is why we have Banks and so many other areas where we lodge our money for safe keeps so tell me if money is the root of evil,why is there computer and the internet?

Why is Bill Gate sitting in his office now

Why is the president in the office

Why is the pastor standing on the pulpit

Money money money

This is the best thing one can posses but if you do not agree with me that money it self is not the root of evil but the love of money then will you chose to be poor and i mean like the church rat?

It is not money that is evil, but the selfishness of man that comes into play. The average person works hard to earn money, but the dishonest lie, cheat, steal and kill to get it. If we put the blame where it belongs, it will be at the doorstep of the dishonest. Thank you for sharing this.

I like mquee's comments.

Thanks Rossimobis, money is so powerful. Looking at it deeply some people do things they don't really want to because of money and lets not even talk about Africa, the human rituals people do to get money. OMG! (sorry, that was deep but you know what its like Bruv) As you said some kill for money.

I think the world would be more peaceful if we didn't have to handle money. Happiness, no stress, no muggings etc. Let me make you laugh before I go, I know you'll understand this:

My pastor said: in Africa, money brings you a lot of respect. He said if you are maybe a Millionaire or close to that, when you call someone's name, the person will jump up and run towards you so fast and say "sir" but if you don't have much money, you call the same person and they just get up casually and say "ehe" thinking, what does he even have to offer self, lol.

Anyway, have a blessed week. :)

That was excellent, awesome in fact. So many people misquote the bible., where it tells us that the LOVE of money is the root of evil. Of course we need money and God knows this.

Great hub. Thank you.

Thanks for this hub. The book of Proverbs, the most recognised wisdom literature within the bible, spends one-third of its time speaking of money; how to gain it, what to do with it and attitudes pertaining to it. As a 'root of all kinds of evil', it is paramount we apply 'spiritual' truths to money, so that we are enabled to master it, and not the other way around.

To quote Anon: "Use money and love people, don't love money and use people"

I agree - there are many people who use money for good and many people who use it for evil and who are driven by it. It all depends on the person I think - good hub though and well written!

mquee has a good point above thus the support from my love sis lady_E, you see sis, it is not about Africa or ritual but about what we believe so thanks alot for the insight you brought in here and your pastor is right but that applies not just in Africa but all over the world...Dim the misquote is because of selfish understanding and the love of money which is marely seen within the congregations today.A pastor roaming the world on a private jet...LOVE OF MONEY, thnaks for your support.

parrster, don't use people,that was great and i will adhere to it all the time because just like akirchner said above it all depends on the people, thanks guys,appreciate all your support and love.

5o sir,you are always right and shows a lot of wisdom cos it is not just about money but people.Thank you sir!

We need to hold to the real values of life and those values are lives. We need to hold our brothers and sisters up. We need to love each other and bless each other. Thank you Brother Man! Nice music!

The LOVE money leads to greed, selfishness, lying, cheating, stealing and drains man of his soul. Beautiful piece my friend.
