“For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.” So wrote Paul the Apostle, in his First Epistle to Timothy. And I think it’s fair to say, that’s his opinion and he has every right to it. Bill Cassel takes the other side of this lively point-counterpoint in today’s heartwarming segment: Everybody Loves Money.
