Stump and Roots Cut-off

The root of all evil

is Cut-off by Christ’s


Psalm 65:12

The pastures of the wilderness overflow, the hills gird themselves with joy

James 1:17

Every generous act of giving, with every perfect gift, is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change.

Words of Grace For Today

Pastures of wilderness, hills of joy …

God’s unchanging Light gives all perfect gifts we receive and every act that is generous giving.

It is said since times of old ‘The root of X is Y.’

it is said since time of old ‘The root of all Evil is Money.’

Since before time the truth is the root of all everything is God, God is good, and God created everything good.

The root of everything is that it is good … until it is perverted to something else.


The force of evil is strong, the evil empires’ forces are large and powerful … and small and effective. It is all the way of the Devil, no matter the images we use to comprehend it and communicate it to others.

Hoards of powerful people carry this virus, the virus of the Devil’s empty promises. Those empty promises seem to be powerful for they have taken over the economies of all lands, some worse than others, where everything is described as freedom and equal human rights, but in reality hatred, racism, misogyny and misandry, and bigotry are used to slam down great numbers of people so that a few can pretend they reign at the top. They appear to reign with, riches, comfort, pleasure, and power. But they are more unhappy than any others, for their achievements are empty, requiring more and more sacrifice of their souls, their being, in order to fool themselves into continuing to believe that they have succeeded in life.


The simple and pure act of giving, giving generously, self-sacrificially, to another human symbolizes all that God does for us, for all of creation.

Every act of generous giving has it’s root in God’s goodness.

Therefore, where humans have not yet dominated, domesticated, exploited, in the wildernesses of creation the pastures and the hills overflow with God’s Goodness, and with all creation know they joy they were created to contain and share.

Let us pray that we may also be those who generously, self-sacrificially, participate in the simple and pure acts of giving others an abundant life.
