Money can become an idol when you start putting it first in your life. If it all you think about, what you live for then it can become an idol. Money in itself is not a bad thing, but when it becomes the most important thing to you, then it can be considered an idol.
Money is mentioned very often in the bible and it is an easy idol to adopt. Money is power and the average person will work hard and never have "enough". We are cautioned about storing our treasure and there are ways that it can be taken from you and used for auto repairs and medical bills. If you guide your relationship to money using biblical principals, you will always have enough. In the book of Malachi (last book of the old testament) chapter 3 verse 10, He gives you a promise and says TRUST ME. Read it for yourself and you will have enough.
