6:10 Love of money - Commonly called prudent care of what a man has. Is the root - The parent of all manner of evils. Which some coveting have erred - Literally, missed the mark. They aimed not at faith, but at something else. And pierced themselves with many sorrows - From a guilty conscience, tormenting passions, desires contrary to reason, religion, and one another. How cruel are worldly men to themselves!
View People's Bible Notes for 1 Timothy 6:10
1Ti 6:10 For the love of money is the root of all evil. Not the money itself, which if used as by a steward of God is a blessing, so much as the love of it. This greedy love is the source of every sin. Men murder, cheat, lie, rob, run saloons, gambling houses, brothels, all for the love of money. For love of money Judas sold his Master. Some . . . have erred from the faith. Have wandered from the faith through the love of money. Judas is one example.

DAVID's comment on 2013-01-10 14:53:39:
This is of a truth! Many of God’s creation disregard or neglect his will, to do their own will and chase after money. And for their greediness of gain, God takes his spirit far away from them. For example: Yolanda Adams, Mary Mary, and much much more people, who, desire the worship building to look good, have chased the money for it! We are far from God! God said in Isaiah 54:8-9, my ways are not your ways, and my thoughts are not your thoughts, (verse 9), for as the heavens are higher than the earth so are my ways higher than your ways!!! God is telling us, while your mind is stuck on earthly things, such as: the worship building/or most call church, I send my people on a mission to tell my people about me, that they may turn from their ways to the living God and be healed (2 Chronicles 7:14, Ezekiel 33:8). Because God's wrath and anger is kindled/or started, and fire consumes or destroys the earth and the inhabitants or dwellers thereof/that live, remain, or stay in them... our mission from God through Jesus Christ is to call to repent, turn from our ways and believe the gospel of Jesus Christ, or walk in them. God bless you! Amen.
