“Money is the root of all evil.”?
So misquoted and so inaccurate!
The true scripture is: The love of money is the root of all evil.
Money is a tool that eases trade. Money is only worth whatever the commodity it is composed of (cotton or metals) is valued at, which is relatively minute compared to the value assigned to it.
A dollar is a piece of cotton-paper material, worthless for the most part as the physical good itself, but the value assigned to it can be traded for other physical or intangible resources—other people’s time.
It is important to have the correct perspective and understanding of what money is.
People generally don’t love money. They love what money gets them: physical and intangible resources.
Loving money itself is silly.
