How Could You Worship Two Gods?

Matthew 6:24
24 “How could you worship two gods at the same time? You will have to hate one and love the other, or be devoted to one and despise the other. You can’t worship the true God while enslaved to the god of money!”

Money can enslave us if we begin to value it more than God. If we are slaves to money we have made money our god. When money becomes a god in our lives, we devote ourselves to it and despise the one true living God. 

The scriptures inform us that we cannot love both God and money. This is not to say that it is wrong to have money. It isn’t wrong to have wealth either. Money becomes an issue when money controls you. 

Have you allowed money to have you? To be clear, do you value money and the treasures of this earth over God and the eternal treasures He has for us in heaven?

Reflecting from a spiritual perspective, I’d say it’s safe to say to escape any enslavement to money; we must devalue money and any self-centeredness it creates. Jesus commands us to hate the god of money and love God. 

I want to encourage you to choose God. Money is temporary and does not go with us when we die. Fortunately God the Father has prepared a place for those who love Him and believe in Him. Money cannot compare to the treasures God has stored for us in heaven. 

I challenge you to change your outlook on money. Consider how the money you possess on this earth can bless the kingdom in addition to your own needs and desires. Ask the Holy Spirit to enlighten you on how to handle money and be a good steward of it. 

Ask yourself now if money is controlling you. If it is, commit today to change that by seeking God’s guidance to break free from it.  

Pray this week:

Dear God,

Thank you for being my God! The God who provides all provision. Please show me how to be a good steward. While on earth, I want to glorify you through my giving. My prayer is that you will always be the only God of my life.

In Jesus Name,
