"Ever since money was invented, it has occupied a very powerful spot in the hearts, minds and lives of human being". Some people living their whole lives not having much of it, while others living their lives comfortably having all the money more than they need. There are also people who engage in illegal activities just to acquire it.
But why does money hold such power over people? The reason is that, it provides them with power to do what they want to do, whatever that may be. Some says, "money is the most powerful weapon in the world". For you can acquire anything whether it's good or bad thing . It can buy you luxuries, open doors and opportunities, for nations it can buy weapons for war, it can even put an innocent person to jail and the worst and saddest truth is it can break relationships with families and friends. Some people feel monet gives them a sense of personal worth. That's why many associate the accumulation of wealth with the accumulation of power- the more money you have, the powerful you can be. There are still lots of things to do with money that I haven't yet mentioned.
Money is not the root of evil. 1 Timothy 6:10 " for the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil". Money itself is neither goos nor bad. It's a way for people to trade it to things they needed and wanted. How you use the money makes it evil and it is a reflection of who you are and what you value. It merely reveals your character. The question for you and me is, what will money reveal in us? Would it be a good side or evil one?
