The Almightier” by Carl Hassmann in Puck Magazine May 15, 1907 (114 years ago today.)

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.” 1 Timothy 6:10, KJV (And the world with many sorrows.)

Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal: But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal: For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.” Matthew 6:19–21, KJV

No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon” Matt 6:24, KJV

“He that is greedy of gain troubleth his own house; but he that hateth gifts shall live” Proverbs 15:27, KJV
