Are you serving God or money?
Here’s a teaching snippet:
“No man 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“. Now these are Jesus words in Mt 6:24. In Aramaic, (the language that many people believe Jesus spoke), the word for money or wealth is called mammon. In two instances Matthew 6:24 and Luke 16:13, “mammon” is identified as a rival to God for the loyalty of the disciples and the same warning is pertinent to us today. Jesus asks us—”who will you obey: God or money?” It’s impossible to serve this god called “mammon” and the true Yahweh God at the same time. The New Testament calls money, “uncertain riches” for a reason. They’re so labeled because they cannot be trusted, but God can and He offers the greatest return of investment of all when we sow into His Kingdom! In 1 Timothy 6:17, the Apostle Paul warns the rich not to be ‘high minded’,” 17 Charge them that are rich in this world, that they be not high-minded, nor trust in uncertain riches, but in the living God, who gives us richly all things to enjoy.” This word ‘high-minded’ in the modern vernacular really means ‘arrogant’ and there’s potential for the rich to become arrogant because they have so much money at their disposal.” – Pastor Carl
