Luke 16:13 (NIV) No servant 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.

Matthew 6:19-21 (NIV) 19 Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moths and vermin destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. 20 But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moths and vermin do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. 21 For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.

So self-explanatory, right?? RIGHT!!!

Not saying it’s not beneficial to have money, let’s be truthful. Even in the body of Christ, it takes money to spread the Gospel. But our pursuit shouldn’t be about money. Let’s not get caught up in having things and let’s focus on having Christ!!! Some of us spend our time in the rat race society has created trying to be the best, make the most money, and be the most intelligent. Only to be a miserable mean person in the process. Life is worth much more than pursuing worldly “treasure” or riches. Be a person with depth and substance. Focus on the eternal. When you seek the Kingdom of God and His righteousness all things will be added to your life…ALL THINGS. (Ref Matthew 6:33) Be a WHOLE person. Put Christ first and the money with follow you!!! Money shouldn’t be ALL you have to offer. Christ will always provide. Trust in HIS RICHES!!!

  1. The reason we cannot serve both God and money is because, for many people, money becomes their god. Once we begin to deal with a large amount of money (sometimes, it doesn’t even take a large amount of money), money becomes the bottom line, and all our decisions are based on the dollar factor. When we hear that someone took a job that paid less money (even though it may be more fulfilling to them), the world thinks they’re CRAZY. In most cases, money leads people away from God and goes against the principles of God, but most people can’t see this because we’ve become “blinded” by money. “Trust in HIS riches!!!”Amen Sister!


    • Isn’t that the truth…that’s why it says it’s easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than it is for a rich man to get into the Kingdom.. (paraphrase there) but it doesn’t state that one can’t get it, but it’s difficult because a rich person becomes sooo dependant on money rather than the one true provider…we have to get to the place of honoring the source( the Lord) but using the resources ( the money) for His Kingdom!
