No one can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and money.
I cannot serve two masters.
Serve: Placing myself in submission to someone or something. Be subjected to. Be used by. An act of the will. A conscious decision to give up certain rights.
Master: The person or thing I serve. That which owns me. The person or thing that calls the shots in my life. The person or thing that sets the agenda for my life.
I cannot love two masters.
Masters call us toward different paths.
I cannot travel two paths at once.
The path I take demonstrates my loyalty.
Masters do not share allegiance.
As soon as you bow before one your back is turned to the other.
Masters do not share devotion.
As soon as I devote myself to one master, I treat the other with contempt.
God or money.
Which master do you serve?
Talking to God
Father, help me answer that question honestly. Based on my answer move me to the appropriate action. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
