You Can’t Serve Two Masters

Daily "Words of Wisdom" from Apply Wisdom.com

“No one can slave for two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will stick to the one and despise the other. YOU​cannot slave for God and for Riches” (Matthew 6:24).

Financial Sin has destroyed the world. Because sinful men love things and use people, rather than love people and use things, they spend all their lives worshiping money.

Because men worship money, not Yahweh, they have drifted away from Yahweh, destroyed the family, and ruined the earth.

  1. Worshiping money makes silly men drift away from Yahweh: Because sinful men love themselves and want to be happy, they spend their time pursuing and worshiping things, possessions, and temporary happiness, rather than Yahweh the author of life and source of eternal happiness.
  1. Worshiping money destroys the family: Because men are selfish, they believe the family should make them happy. Rather than investing in the family, they suck the life and joy out of their family. And when they realize that they are not happy, they leave their family in pursuit of freedom or of another family, which they think will make them happy. This sinful mindset destroys the biblical institution of the family and leaves so many devastated children and women in its wake.
  1. Worshiping money ruins the earth. If someone loves Yahweh with their all and loves their neighbor as themselves then they are not going to pollute the earth. Factories, power plants, ozone destroyers, vehicle smog, and oil spills are because men want to be rich more than they want to enjoy the earth forever. Global warming is nothing more than a symptom of man worshiping his real god, money.

Do you worship money or Yahweh?  Do you spend more time seeking money or Yahweh?
