Only God knows how many people in the world are currently spending their time engaged in the making of money as their god and sole purpose of existence. From when Cain wanted to keep the better portion of a sacrifice that he could have given to God in thanks, until current times, the greed of the human race has been extraordinarily self-defeating. Entire countries are consumed with spending a good portion of their budget on military hardware and many other wicked devices, all the while that a child is starving to death at the rate of 1 every ten seconds in the world.
Flesh passes away so quickly, in approximately an 80 year life span worldwide. Living for the making of money has got to be one of the most short-sighted but common endeavors in the history of the human race.
Many people are without consideration as to the eternal destiny of their own soul and spirit along with the eternal destiny of the souls and spirits of their loved ones and friends in who they influence - preferring instead living for the next couple of bucks.
1st Epistle of Timothy 6:10 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.
