Money

Weeks and months go by and I struggle with my own perception of right and wrong. I am having my eyes opened to the realities of the world...of the hearts of man. I realize I have lived in quite a bubble for so many years that what I thought was "normal" is more "unique" than anything else.

For example: Money.
I loathe money...Now that is...
I was quite apathetic towards money for most of my life. It was there when I needed it and when it wasn't, I just made due.
I am learning that money is something that holds man captive far more than I thought possible. (...remember: bubble existence)  The scripture that says:
"For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil. Some people, eager for money, have wandered from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs."~1 Timothy 6:10
It is the "love" of money that is evil. Letting money govern our decisions, our hearts, and consume our existence is the norm...or so I am learning. Our society depends on this.
