The Money My Controller, the title alone is so defining of the chapter. At one point in my life I believed that money was the overall key to happiness. You could not convince me that there was anything more important in life than money, everything revolved around the $ sign to me. It didn't matter if it was doing something for a good cause or a bad cause... if it was about money, I was about it. Money was truly my master and I was its slave!
1 TIMOTHY 6:10 NIV For the love of money is the root of all kinds of evil. And some people craving money, have wandered from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs.
Throughout my life, I've heard this scripture quoted ... but only part of it. I've never heard it quoted word for word or even what book of the bible it was from. When I would hear it quoted it always would go something like this,
"money is the root of all evil"
But now after reading the scripture for myself and looking at many of my past choices when it came to money, that scripture holds true in my life and the way that I was living my life back then. Even now, this scripture is one that I really need to use daily because it is easy to get wrapped up in something that looks good but it can be for all the wrong reasons if I am not careful. That's what Resurrected From Hell is based on... me personally, getting into many different situations through out my life and BOOM! a gigantic bomb of trouble goes off and blows up in my face every time. Just about every time money was the root of the problem, now it is not that having money is a bad thing, however, it was my desire/love for the money that was fueled by bad purposes and that is the base of Chapter 3 The Money My Controller.
