He who loves money will not be satisfied with money

The love of money is something that causes damage to people’s lives, speaking more clearly, those whose god is money to the point that they are capable of selling a child to the enemy of souls in order to have more and more.

Having money is not bad, the problem lies in loving money, and that love of money can lead you to do reprehensible things, because you only think about having money.

It is good to have an abundance of material goods, but we must remember that everything is vanity, because one day you will go to the grave and you will not take anything of this world with you. It’s not worthy to work just to have and never enjoying it. The more human beings have, the more they want and that is why many amass great fortunes and do not enjoy them because they only work to have more.

The Bible advises us on this, it warns us to be careful, because once you become very money lover, then it will be difficult for you to get out of this enormous vanity.

In Ecclesiastes the Bible tells us about the love of money:

He that loveth silver shall not be satisfied with silver; nor he that loveth abundance with increase: this is also vanity.

Ecclesiastes 5:10 (KJV)

Solomon, writer of the above words, possessed ever-increasing wealth. But he knew that if he put his thoughts only on his wealth, it could consume him and would not bear any fruit as it has happened with many.

So, brothers in Christ Jesus, we must be careful with this, let’s not be like those who live accumulating riches, loving their riches and only putting their hearts into it, which will cause great consequences.

Let us praise all of us, who only fix our eyes on the Lord, let us give thanks to Him and ask Him to cover us from all vanity that causes serious damage to people’s lives.
