If Money is the root of all evil then poor people would be saints. Yet we have seen heinous crimes in poor villages. It is the love of money that is the root of some evil. Misunderstanding of this biblical verse has kept many believers in poverty.
God wants you to be rich so you can do good in the world. How can you demonstrate love to others without money? How can you build God’s kingdom without money.
Money is a servant and can be used to do good for fellow man. Perceived this way money then becomes a tool to be leveraged to do God’s work. Electricity is a very dangerous thing. But we couldn’t live our lives without it. Instead we harness it safely and use it to improve our lives. Same thing with money. In the wrong hands it can do a lot of harm. In the right hands it can transform lives.
