there is an old joke about the conflicting ideas on moeny;one person remakes,"money is the root of all evil,and his frinds respond'"i know, i've been rooting for it all my life." what is your view?in what ways do you make about planting money. i think a first step toward learing to budget,building up savings in a piggy bank,or opening own bank accout. the reason do this is that it can you lead a indispensable life,and can steer clear of the emergency,by saving a lot of money for mant years is good for travel....... and what is your plan ?

It is a common saying that “money is the root of all evil.” It's a common misquotation that seems to have been doing the rounds for at least 1000 years! The origin is the verse: “For the love of money is the root of all evil.” Timothy, 6:10. But how fair is it to blame all evil, or even any evil, on a medium of exchange? I think it would be a much more accurate statement to say that the root of a lot of evil is man’s desire for status; either greed - to increase one’s status, or jealousy over losing in the status game to others. Money is just the most obvious measure of status, so it’s easy to confuse the two, but they are certainly not the same thing at all. Money is just one way of keeping score. Blaming money for evil is like blaming the scoreboard for the football game.

That's exactly the point I was making. It is not money which is evil, Timothy is saying that it is the love of money which is the problem. Of course we need money to live. It is when we start to desire more money than we really need that things begin to go wrong.
