I saw this interesting story on the Today show yesterday and wanted to share it. I didn't have a money addiction but I did have an unhealthy obsession with saving money back in 2009 and I thank God I am healed from it. I too found giving my money away to worthy causes and people a cure for my obsession. Personal finance is a passion for me, and I am well versed on the subject yet I have a lot more to learn about it. However, having a passion related to money can be hazardous but as long as you don't allow the love of money to consume you and have priority in your life it is a healthy passion. In sum, you have to like money but love God, Family, Health, People, etc.
