I Timothy 6:9-10 But they that will be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition. 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.
It would seem that we or at least I have a pretty constant problem with the truths in this verse. I seem to always want more. I want it, watch for it, wait on it, pray for it and get impatient that I don’t have it.
I know that I am not supposed to love money. I would tell you that I don’t. I would defend myself by showing you how much I have given away,etc. but I have a problem. I want. I keep wanting. I seem to never be satisfied.
I tell myself that I do not have this problem but when I look around, give it a minute, I see that I still have the problem.
I want to want Jesus and to depend only on Him. I want to turn my eyes from things and focus on Jesus because He is the only person or thing that can truly satisfy. I have to constantly keep my guard up to help me get victories over this constant problem!
