When you hear the word God, money is probably not your first thought. However, if we’re not careful, money can quickly take the place of God in your life. There’s a thin green line that often separates our heart and our head and it’s the thickness of a dollar bill. Paul warned Timothy that “the love of money is the root of all kinds of evil. Some people eager for money, have wandered from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs.” (1 Timothy 6:10) Money in and of itself is not bad. As with so many things involving our faith, it all comes down to the heart. (Matthew 6:21) It’s not about the money it’s about our heart.
It forces you to chase things that’ll never satisfy.
