In our daily lives, we make decisions that ultimately define who we serve. While some may argue that they serve both God and mammon (or money), it is important to remember that we cannot serve two masters.
In serving God, we prioritize our relationship with Him above all else. We seek to follow His commandments and live according to His will. This may mean making sacrifices, giving to others, and putting our faith in Him even when it is difficult.
On the other hand, serving mammon means prioritizing our own selfish desires and material possessions above all else. We may become obsessed with accumulating wealth and possessions, at the expense of our relationships, health, and spiritual well-being.
Ultimately, the choice of who we serve is ours alone. We must consider the long-term implications of our decisions and ensure that they align with our values and beliefs. By serving God, we open ourselves up to a life of fulfillment, purpose, and inner peace that cannot be achieved through material gain alone.
13 “No servant can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or else he will be loyal to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon.” Luke 16:13
