Be sober; Watch….

1 Peter 5:8  Be sober; watch. Your adversary, the devil, as a roaring lion, walks about, seeking someone to devour.

9 Him withstand, being firm in your faith, knowing that the same sufferings are being accomplished among your brotherhood in the world.

The New Testament encourages us to be watchful and warns us concerning our enemy, the devil.  Do you know that we have enemy?  I was struck by these words “Your adversary”. Do you know that you have an adversary?  Without being watchful he will devour us.  But him withstand being firm in your faith!  Faith comes out of hearing, and hearing through the word of Christ (Rom. 10:17).

The Love of Money

1 Timothy 1:9-10 But those who intend to be rich fall into temptation and a snare and many foolish and harmful desires, which plunge men into destruction and ruin.  For the love of money is a root of all evilsbecause of which some, aspiring after money, have been led away from the faith and pierced themselves through with many pains.

Its not just money, but the love of money that is the root of all evils.
