No servant 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. Luke 16:13
In the lobby of the School of Business building on the campus of a university in the city where I live is a sculpture that reminds me of the passage above. The center of it is a gigantic dollar sign. On one side of the symbol is the figure of a man with his hand resting on it. On the other side is another figure of a man kneeling in homage to the symbol. The inscription reads "Master or Servant."
Quite often, in these days, we have seen the drive for wealth become such an all-consuming passion that all other matters lose significance, even God. Such individuals forget that money is, at best, only a means to an end and never intended to be our goal. Our goal as believers is to serve God, and anything that distracts us from that is IDOLATRY.
Let's serve God with glad hearts today!
Father, keep my focus on You so that all other things may keep their proper places.
