The Money Game

People can get disillusioned by the glitter of money and then make many wrong moves and mistakes.  It’s not supposed to be the right motivation for human acts, rather a concommitant effect of human living.  God’s word precisely warns us against such common deception and pitfall.  “The love of money is the root of all evils and there are some who, pursuing it, have wandered away from the faith, and given their souls any number of fatal wounds” (1 Tim. 6:10).

This so significant a quotation from  the Bible and you should do well to read it from those letters of St. Paul.  They used to say: “Haste makes waste.”  How many lives have been lost just for the hurried and crazy pursuit of money; they made many mistakes and involved themselves and others in so many life tragedies and catastrophes.  Just imagine the many accidents at sea where so many lives perished and drowned just because people threw away discretion to the winds for the desire to make money.

Wrong economy indeed!
