1 Timothy 6:10-12
For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil, for which some have strayed from the faith in their greediness, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows. But you, O man of God, flee these things and pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, gentleness. Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, to which you were also called and have confessed the good confession in the presence of many witnesses.
-Not money but the love of money is the root of all evil. Though we can freely choose the root but not the fruit. The desire to get rich may sometime plunge us into ruin and destruction leading us to wonder away from the faith and pierced ourselves with many pangs. The Holy Spirit grants us patience, love, faith, gentleness, righteousness and godliness that we may be set free from greed. Many of our brother and sisters engage in money laundering and fraudulent activities, forgery, gold scams, corruption, theft of public resources, witchcraft, covetousness, murder et cetera, due to the love of money. It is our responsibility to fight the good fight of faith and bear integrity in our conduct as God has entrusted us. We realize that in the quest to gain all the wealth in the world; it is not sufficient for our existence but only the love of God can satisfy our souls. Money can buy one a bed but not sleep; books but not brains; food but not appetite; finery but not beauty; a house but not a home; medicine but not health; luxuries but not culture; amusements but not happiness; religion but not salvation; a passport to everywhere but heaven. Many times we have fallen short of these truths and gone astray; but God calls us to patience, repentance and conversion that His kingdom principles may be reflect through us as His ambassadors, for His love for us is everlasting.
Lord You have good plans for our lives; plans to prosper us and not to harm us; plans to give us hope and a future, we believe in You. Only You Jesus know our thoughts and our hearts desires; deliver us from greed and the love of money, we humbly implore You. Holy Spirit grant us the fruit of love, patience, gentleness, godliness, faith that we may only rest secure in You. Forgive us all our sins Lord, sins of our forefathers, family members, friends, leaders, nation and shower us with Your precious blood. Grant us our heart desires, success in our businesses and projects, new jobs and promotion in our work places, excellence in our studies, healing from any form of disease, direction in our relationships and marriages, family success, guidance in our national affairs, proper leadership in our churches, breakthrough in all life situations and propel us to higher levels of grace according to Your purpose. Thank Jesus You for what You have already done, what You are doing, and what You are going to do in our lives. Thank You loving us with an everlasting love Jesus, we praise You and exult Your holy name. Amen
