No One Can Serve Two Masters
“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. (Matthew 6:24 ESV)
We cannot serve God and money at the same time. What is it that controls us? Is it our desire to make money or our desire to please God. If we seek God and His righteousness with all our heart with purity, God will not forsake us. He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him and He will reward us His own way.
If we desire money and we are money driven even in our ministry and Christian life, we will fall because our motive and purpose is not pure. We have become corrupted and cannot please God. Those who are impure and money driven easily yield to temptation without resistance so we have to be prepared and put on the complete armor of God.
If we are prepared and pure in purpose and intention, we will be able to resist temptations when they come. We cannot serve God and money so we have to choose before hand to serve God instead of money .
