Wealth is not evil. The love of money or wealth, however, is a problem. Jesus put it this way.
Unfortunately, most of us find the prospect of riches tempting. So we have this proverb.
Proverbs 30:7-9 New King James Version (NKJV)
7 Two things I request of You
(Deprive me not before I die):
8 Remove falsehood and lies far from me;
Give me neither poverty nor riches—
Feed me with the food allotted to me;
9 Lest I be full and deny You,
And say, “Who is the Lord?”
Or lest I be poor and steal,
And profane the name of my God.
