Serving two Masters?


Since many people have a love for money, it has become their "god".
Having money is no sin, but if you are putting this above God money has become an idol. The Bible teaches that we cannot serve two master, the mammon and the Lord God. It will rip one apart if they try.

When people run out of money they are asking for prayer and begin seeking God to fill their wallet. Wallet filled, prayer is gone.

Thy money perish with thee, because thou hast thought that the gift of God may be purchased with money. Acts 8:20

The love of money will destroy you. I recently read that a German Billionaire got in financial trouble due to the economical situation in the world. He threw himself before an uncoming train. His "god" was vanishing and so did he.

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

There is far more to life than $$, believe me. Usually believers are living closer to God with little money than with too much. Life can be challenging, but God will provide if we put our trust in Him alone and as long as we focus on God and not having the dollar sign in our eyes.

I have been young, and now am old; yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging bread. Psalm 37:25

Naked we were born and naked we will die. In other words, we brought nothing with us when we arrived on this planet and we cannot take anything with us when we leave this world.

All the things of this world are temporal, including money. Life after death is eternal, be it eternal bliss or eternal burning. Something to think about!
