Money is an important part of life, and it's natural to want to have enough of it to live comfortably. But having money or spending money should not be the ultimate goal. Those who love money are never satisfied with what they have, and this is vanity. The Bible warns us that the love of money can lead to all kinds of ills.
It's not that money is the root of all evil, as some translations say, but that loving money can lead to evil acts such as theft, embezzlement, money laundering, and identity theft. When a person has too much money, they become a slave to their wealth. This can lead some people away from their faith. If you're feeling stressed out about your financial situation, take a moment to read these Bible verses about financial concerns. Meditate on them and take a break to pray.
