My ability at gardening is questionable at best. My wife made it quite clear that when weeding we must get at the roots or nothing is really getting done. Often times we deal with symptoms of a problem rather than the root causes. Paul gives us a warning in 1 Timothy 6:10. The love of money is a dangerous root that must be yanked.
Think choices not objects
Money is not evil. It is incredibly useful with proper stewardship. The love of money is a root that can lead to many evils. Often we blame external things, like money, for our own internal problems, like the love of money. Technology is an external that gets blamed for internal choices that are being made. The Bible is not anti-money or anti-rich, but it does give warnings. The issue is if money is our love, our own personal comfort, we are likely not to choose things that God may call us too.
Hard and not fair
Life is hard and not fair. Our temptation is to go the easy route or fight for our own comfort. The Christian life often requires seasons of sacrifice. It often call us to do the hard task of peacemaking, which is messy. Persecution or defamation may also occur. If money and comfort is your love and highest goal, it will cause you to shipwreck your faith.
Enjoy God's blessings
Again, the issue is the love of money and not money itself. It is good to enjoy life. Ecclesiastes says to eat, drink and enjoy the fruit of your labor for this too is a gift from God. Blessing loved ones and taking time to enjoy life is not a sin. The warning is against our wealth or comfort becoming an idol we pursue over and above God. So weed out the root of the love of money, and enjoy and blessings from God.
