Interesting.

Using the concept of greed to teach the concept of greed.

It's no wonder this country is in the financial state that it's in.

We're fast headed into Socialism. This will, probably, speed up the transition.

1 Timothy 6:10:

10 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.

It's ironic that a book many view as archaic and out of touch can describe current events so accurately.

But, these are your kids and you'll teach them what you want. Then you'll blame others for the way they turn out.

I think you missed the point. Money is great. Solomon likely had more wealth than any king in history, and there is nothing wrong with it. The point of that verse and context throughout is that the "love" of money is the route of all evil. Without wealth or the wealthy there would have never been an America. Strive for goodness and wealth gives you options, the bible also says a "good man" leaves an inheritance for his children's children can't do that of you are poor.

The inheritance of integrity is worth way more than gold, or silver.
