1 Timothy 6:10 – For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.
I was watching a documentary on drug and substance abuse. I actually watched different reports. I got so stunned when one of the meeting organized by a head distributor from a pharmaceutic industry met with an undercover journalist. The head distributor just arrived from church for that meeting and the only stuff that came out of his mouth was all evil, corrupt and demonic. He quipped that the drug he is very addictive, so the undercover journalist doesn’t have to worry about the purchasing. That the perfect candidates now are the children in schools. And that as soon as they have a taste of the drug, they would keep coming for more at any cost.
Those statements saddened my heart to see how wicked the heart of man can be. And like in today’s scripture above, we understand that is it important for the Lord to have a hold, not only in your life, but in lives of your family, friends, city, community, country and the world at large. Because all that the enemy seeks to achieve is destroying us.
This should be our prayer
That we all put our nation in the Lord’s hands. So that he leads and rules not the devil and his demons.
