The root cause

I have seen people change their lives for the better and I've unfortunately seen people change their lives for the worse. And, I have been wondering and contemplating what could posssibly be the causes of these drastic changes for the worse.

The causes of the turning ones life for the worse seems to directly related in part or in whole to the availability of or lack of money. When there has been the lack of money in the lives of some people and they desired to have it by any means; then they normally turn to committing offenses that they feel will give them their desired results and that is have money. The same could be said for those that have a considerable amount of money and they desire more and more of it. They have been know to enter into scamming for more or manipulating the existing system not only to receive more but to keep more.

Now, there is nothing wrong with having money, however when the reverse can be said and that is the money has you then that becomes a problem. Money is stated in the scripture as being able to answer all things. This includes but not limited to the providing of your family, giving to organizations that provide for those that can't seem to provide for themselves.

1Tim6:10 For the love of money is the root of all evil:which while some coveted after, they erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows. Lets not love money, but like it; so we are able to do what the Lord would require for us to do with it, for the "root of righteous" yields fruit. Prov. 12:12b
