MONEY AND POWER

There is a saying “God made man, man made money, money made man mad”. The bible says and i quote

1 Timothy 6:10

King James Version (KJV)

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.

We have all gone insane, or atleast the majority of us, trying to make more and more money.

The truth is, money is not the problem because it is the main medium of exchange. The problem is the Love of money.

Love is an intense feeling of deep affection towards something or someone. Love makes people go out of their way to get something or for someone or even to get someone. For example, if you love a certain lady or guy, you will find yourseld doing extra acts of affection like denying yourself a good time just to buy for that person a gift.

The same applies to money, if you love money, it means that you will go out of your way just to have lots and lots of it. That is why some people kill for money, rob others of their money, sleep with other people to get the money and so on.
Why do we want money so bad?
Money is associated with power. there is not a poweful man on this earth who is not rich. Even Jesus was rich but in His case, Money was not the source of His power.
Power means the ability to get things done. The more money one has, the faster He/She can get things done.
All I am trying to say is, do not let money control you but take control of it.
Peace out.
