“No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon” Matthew 6:24, KJV.
I wouldn’t be writing if I chose to live for the money.
Mammon in the Greek means wealth and the gain of it is the basis this world system operates by. According to mammon, wealth is the key to your happiness and self-worth, therefore, live for it and serve it. Pursue it. Mammon says let money and material possessions be the sun in your life, and all that you are revolves around them.
We can’t serve two masters. Either you will love and embrace the one, and hate and despise the other. The devil through mammon will always permanently promise what it only temporarily delivers. You will have a house, but not have a home. You will have sugar, but it won’t be sweet. Mammon will ultimately leave you unhappy and empty.
Choose to continue to love the Lord and embrace His ways in your life. No matter the temptation as a man that you may have, remain strong and hold fast to seeking His kingdom and righteousness first, knowing the Father will take care of you. Continue to do God’s will, Who will bless and prosper you—His way. I am a living witness that He will financially increase you without having to compromise Who you serve.
Prayer: Father, thank You for revealing to me the truth about mammon. Examine my heart and if I’m serving it. I repent and choose to serve You. My life will revolve around the Son. I reject mammon and my happiness will not be based on money and things, but on You and Your will for me. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
