Who Do You Belong To?

Which master do you serve? You cannot serve both God and money.

Matthew 6:24, “No one can serve two masters. 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 both God and Money.


We live in a materialistic society and sadly we are judged by how many material things we have or don’t have. There is nothing wrong with possessing material things. The problem is that many times people allow material things to become more important to them than God.

A striking scene in a Cambridge, Massachussets courtroom some time ago represented graphically much of our spiritual life.  A dog was claimed by two persons, a man and a woman.  To determine ownership, the judge placed the man on one side of the room and the woman on the other side, while the dog was let loose between them.  “Prince!  Prince!” The dog turned at once to the man and leaped upon him with every sign of affection, rendering the Judge's decision perfectly easy. 


God is calling you!  Satan is calling you!  To whom do you run with eagerness and entire devotion?  Whose, really, are you?
