The Love of Money

February 20, 2022
Book: 1 Timothy

Bible Passage: 1 Timothy 6:10

There are real dangers which the love of money produce. Whether you have little or much, if you live long enough you will experience the universal desire for more money. Most of us have felt the pressure that money creates when we do not seem to have enough of it & living in America has deceived many of us into believing that having enough money will solve our problems & fill our lives with happiness. We live in a money crazed society & sadly we’re watching young people ruin their futures, adults destroy their marriages, people fracture their friendships, & professing believers sabotage their ministries because of their love for money. Paul knew the dangers that arise from a love of money & warned:

1Ti 6:10  For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.

Since we are dealing with the subject of financial stewardship for the next two weeks, I want us to consider tonight why giving to the Lord actually protects us from the very real danger of loving money.
