For every thousand hacking at the leaves of evil, there is one striking at the root.

    Hi Chris,

    Made me think – am I one of many hacking at the leaves or am I hacking at the root of evil? It also made me think, from a biblical perspective and much less seriously, is that root the love of money?

    • Hi Mark,

      I bet you spend much time hacking at the root and only a little time with the leaf blower….

      “For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evils.” – 1 Timothy 6:10 – It makes you wonder what could be accomplished if enough people attacked this root, doesn’t it?

      Thanks for your comments.
