Series: Misquoted

Topic: money

Scripture: 1 Timothy 6:10

“Money is the root of all evil”

That’s the way it’s been quoted over the years. When understood this way it’s easy to think there’s a real problem with money.

Most people know this reference can be found somewhere in the Bible. But what if this verse doesn’t actually say money is the root of all evil?

1 Timothy 6:10 is where we find this verse.

It’s actually a verse about the heart of man. When our hearts our out of whack, there’s no telling the evil we are capable of.

What if, in the end, our love for money prevented us from seeing eternity with a clear lens?
