Yes, Chris That's why the 'quote marks' on either side of money. I was employing irony. Thanks, though, for pointing that out. That could have been misleading for someone who is not versed in that verse. I mean no irony when I say that, perhaps that was not very sober of me.
The first thing this man should have done upon coming across his first million, even as a business owner, is to get on his face before God, to plead for wisdom and counsel. As I read on, the local bars and strip club came into view, and it occurred to me that this man had no God to get on his face before. Consequently, he came to the same sad conclusion that many do under these circumstances...'money' is the root of all evil. He certainly can't look to himself and the foolish choices he made. You have said the rest, my friend.
""Whittaker now says that he regrets winning the lottery. "Since I won the lottery, I think there is no control for greed," he said. ""
The god of mammon knows no mercy and destroys all who serve him.
This sad tale including the death of this man's grandaughter, which he blames on the lottery win, illustrates the dangerous human sinful condition in avarice and greed. The evil of iniquity and its power over all who walk that way without God.
Proverbs 15:27 "He that is greedy of gain troubleth his own house; but he that hateth gifts shall live"
