We as Christians often have a sense that money is the root of all evil:
“Don’t store up treasures here on earth, where they can be eaten by moths and get rusty, and where theives break in and steal. Store your treasures in heaven, where they will never become moth-eaten or rusty and where they will be safe from theives. Wherever your treasure is, there your heart and thoughts will also be.” (Matt 6:19-21)
“No one can serve two masters. For you will hate one and love the other, or be devoted to one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money.” (Matt. 6:24)
True wealth is about being happy and useful.
Money is a tool; neither good nor evil.
Being truly wealthy or rich is an attitude of gratefulness for God’s blessings. This is a good wealth to desire.
We want to avoid coveting.
