1 Timothy 6:10

"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."

Money is just an object. It is currency used to purchase goods and services and is very valuable. What gets us into trouble is not that we value money, but that we value money more than anything else in life. For the sake of making a buck, people sometimes commit crimes, lie, cheat, murder, etc. and hurt others. The love for money becomes the driving force behind their motives, and money is placed on a higher pedestal than anything else.

Let us reassess the value we place on money, and see it just for what it is - a useful tool of value and not an object to be cherished above all else.
