It's amazing the way some Christians have mistakenly misinterpreted Quote 1.7 to read " Money is the root of all evils" instead of " The love of money is the root of all evils"
Because of this twist in thinking, some Christians have shunned the pursuit of money and decided to live in penury since they think such pursuits are not in alignment with the Bible.
Thank you for these beautiful quotes on money.

Thank you so much, for pointing that out. Quoting or interpreting any verse of scripture out of context is misleading. For instance, the key word in that verse is “the love of money.” Not the concept of money as an economic or ksocial exchange per se.
However, we can see some people’s love and devotion for money, and the side effects…I don’t want to go too far here.
Have a blessed weekend Dadaz!

Steve, thanks so much for commenting. Well, you're not the only one chasing money, but then, we have to consider the #2.

I had a friend, a lady, who shopped only at thrift stores, cut her own hair, dried her clothes on a line with clothespins, mowed her lawn with a push lawn mower and drove an old car.

When she died, she left $1 million to a cultural center and other money (in the hundreds of thousands) to charities.

She rescued dogs and cats and worked well beyond her retirement years. She was never impressed by money, but she acknowledged that her "position with money" may have been a factor in this.

The performance space in the cultural center bears her name and she passed away peacefully with pride.

Excellent post, Sarah, but remember, Money is the root of all evil, is it not? Help others, and you will be helped! Yes?

Jeff, oh yes, I remember that's why I quoted it. Obsession for money, greediness, the idolatry mindset towards money is what the Bible warns against. How we get it and how we spend it matters Jeff.
Thanks always and have a pleasant weekend!
