2 Thought-Provoking Scriptures

“So if you have not been trustworthy in handling worldly wealth, who will trust you with true (eternal) riches? “(Luke 16:11 NIV)

In this verse, Christ illustrates that financial stewardship is truly a test of our hearts.

“For the love of money is the root of all evil…” (1 Timothy 6:10a)

I have to admit that I have read this verse multiple times but never noticed the word “all.” Is it not odd that God would consider the root of “ALL” evil to be the love of something as temporal as money. This verse indicates that God wants us to understand that money is the chief competitor for mankind’s heart.
