2 Timothy 3:1-2 NET “But understand this, that in the last days difficult times will come. For people will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, arrogant, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, ungrateful, unholy,”
A lover of money can do anything, good or bad, to get money; and when they have money, they hold on to it as if their lives depend on it; they hoard money, they are misers and scrooges; they are also greedy and inconsiderate.
People who sacrifice relationships for money are lovers of money; they cheat, backstab friends and colleagues, leave their families and loved ones and even stay away from church in order to make or have more and more of money. Lovers of money are never happy without money. They have idolized money and put it first before any other thing in their lives.
Money is powerful, no doubt about that, and it’s okay to have a lot of it, but the level of your desire for it, how you go about getting it and what you do with it matters. God can make you rich if you let Him; His blessing makes rich without sorrow! If we put Him first He will bless us tremendously. Finally, don’t love money more than fellow men, at the end, relationships are more important.
