2 masters

09 Aug

160809“Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust consume and where thieves break in and steal; but store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust consumes and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. “The eye is the lamp of the body. So, if your eye is healthy, your whole body will be full of light; but if your eye is unhealthy, your whole body will be full of darkness. If then the light in you is darkness, how great is the darkness! “No one can serve two masters; for a slave will either hate the one and love the other, or be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and wealth. (Matthew 6:19-24, NRSV)

No one can serve 2 masters…

Meaning we can not be devoted to more than 1 thing.

Our lives will teeter back and forth if we try to have more than 1 object of devotion.

One can not desire and go after wealth and possessions if one is following after God.

Now this does not mean that one will not have wealth and possessions if one is following after God, but the wealth and possessions will not be the end all be all. They will not be the focus of the person, but merely a tool that God has given them to use in His work.

So store up treasure in God, and trust not in possessions or wealth!
