If a person places their desire to have more money first in their lives, they are choosing not to put God first. When this happens their minds loose focus on God's will for their lives. Their focus is then easily pulled towards evil easy ways to obtain more money.

The love for money goes beyond the need for money. Only God can help our hearts to keep our priorities right but it must be a work we do on ourselves by understanding our needs, that God provides it to us for our good, that we dont have extort others because of it.

I pray for my family and for myself that we can all live lives worthy of earning a place in heaven. It is hard to get ahead in this life especially if you are not fortunate to have a college degree or have a low paying job and can barely pay rent. I pray that people realize not everyone is as fortunate as they are and while money takes away a lot of worries it cannot make them truly happy. Only love for one another can do this. And so I pray for love and peace and happiness on earth and that everyone one earth can have
these things. God will take care of the rest.

Halaluyah! The scripture has made it known to us that the power of greed and the love of money hanker our lives to all kind of evil which ends in brutality and as well hell. We are ment to understand that, it is the love bestow on money not money itself, for the book of ecclesiastis 10 vers 19. Says that money answereth all things, that means that money is good but not for love. God bless you.

I enjoy this scripture because it shows how the love of money leads to all types of evil. People murder for money, steal for money, lie for money, sell themselves for money, betray their friends and family for money and so many other evil things. Money in itself is not bad. In fact Ecclesiastes 7:12 brings out how money is a protection. It's when people place the love of money above all else that leads to the various types of evil.
