1 Timothy 6:10 (KJV): 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.
Reflection on God’s Word for Today - 21 Oct 2023
There's no doubt that money is an extremely powerful magnet that draws people into its orbit. Nearly everyone wants to be rich if not affluent. While money on its own is neutral, human disposition to money could be positive or negative. Our Bible passage today confirms this. When you make the pursuit of money your life's focus, you are exposing yourself to untold harm, pain and sorrow, because money is a wicked master. Your spiritual journey is also in peril and your eternal destiny in Christ is in jeopardy. Jesus makes it clear that you can't serve God and mammon. You must reject one. I counsel you to choose God and reject mammon.
Pray: Holy Lord, I renounce the demon of money and reaffirm my trust in You as my Provider. #Mok
