- King James Bible "Authorized Version", Cambridge Edition
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!
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.

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.

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.

There can only be a greedy love of money.
