All I Have Is That Money On My Mind
Posted: Wednesday, April 13
Verse of the day:
No one can serve two masters. For you will hate one and love the other; you will be devoted to one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and be enslaved to money. (Luke 16:13)
I, like anyone else I know, enjoy money! I like going on cruises. I would like to drive a Rolls. I would like to not have to think about bills ever again. If someone told me that they would like to give me a Scrooge McDuck fortune for me to swim in, I wouldn’t say no. I enjoy a nice life, and money makes life a lot more enjoyable! But is it possible to be a follower of Jesus and still have a wallet full of only 100s?
According to Jesus, you can only serve one master. And that makes complete sense. I mean how successful can you truly be trying to please two opposing parties? The thing with money is that it controls so many absolutely. You ever hear the phrase, “The one who dies with the most toys wins?” For many, that’s the life motto. Get paid and do what you can to get paid more. Build the trust fund, work for retirement, push out anyone who gets in the way, and whenever you can - treat yo self!
