Piercing ourselves trough with many sorrows

CNN once carried a story of a sixty-two-year-old man, who was rushed to Cholet General Hospital in France, suffering stomach pain. His family told doctors the man had a history of mental illness and a penchant for swallowing coins, but nothing could have prepared the doctors for X-rays of the man’s stomach. It was filled with three hundred and fifty coins he had swallowed. The doctors performed surgery to remove the mass, but the man died of complications twelve days later. Now, there aren’t too many of us who are in the habit of swallowing coins, but millions of people are making themselves spiritually and emotionally sick with money and materialism. No wonder the Bible warns that the love of money is a primary root of all evil, causing people to stray from their faith and pierce themselves through with many sorrows. There’s more to life than money.
