What's The Tea? Is It Really Wrong To Love Money?

Unless you have been living under a rock, I'm sure you've heard all about the Oceangate situation. If not, then let me give you a quick rundown. Some rich people paid $250,000 per person to go underwater and see the Titantic on a homemade submersible, and now said submersible is lost at sea. This has brought about a lot of social media attention and many social media debates on whether or not these rich people deserve sympathy. Some social media users think that the rich people had what was coming to them since they signed a waiver to go aboard the poorly built submersible and used their wealth for their own personal gain. While other social media users think that it doesn't matter how much money these people have, they are still humans, and their lives are at stake. If you're like me, then this whole thing may have you thinking about the Bible verse that states the love of money is the root of all evil (1 Timothy 6:10). It's a slippery slope, because on one hand we need money for everything. We need money to buy food, housing, water, and all of our basic necessitates. And on the other hand, we also would like to have money to fund our wants such as traveling, clothes, shoes, nails, etc. Well at least those are my wants lol. But is it really wrong to love money when we need money for literally everything? Also, finances are one dimension of health that can contribute to a person's overall wellbeing. An individual can't thrive mentally, emotionally, or spiritually when they lack the finances to meet their basic needs. In some instances, money really does buy happiness. Although money can't solve all your problems, I'm sure you would be happier if you had money to afford stable housing versus if you didn't. Were the Oceangate submersible passengers wrong for splurging on this underwater adventure? Would it make a difference if we knew whether or not they donated some of their wealth to charity or paid their tithes? Can we honestly determine that these were people who loved money just because they had an extra $250,000 to spare on an under the sea expedition? So many questions. So many possibilities. In conclusion, it may not be wrong to love money since we can't escape it and need it to survive. However, it may be wrong to love money if you are jeopardizing your safety, health, sleep, or anything else for it. Of course, there are so many more factors and Bible verses to discuss when it comes to this topic. So much so that there is enough to write a book about it....#ForTheLoveOfMoney #Titan #OceanGateSub #submarinemissing #TitanicSubmarine #FinancialHealth

When Change Is Uncomfortable...

Change is inevitable. This means that change happens no matter what. There's no stopping it. And there's nothing that you can do to prepare for it in some instances. Hence, the reason why I haven't up
