We All Have A Master
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
Have you ever wanted the best of both worlds?
There are times you will want the advantage of two very different objects at the same time. For example, you may want the peace of living in the country but the access of living in the city. And while you may desire the benefits of both, attaining both is often impossible. For example, the conflict between two competing philosophies is not possible; at least that is what Jesus teaches above. At some point, the philosophy we serve is declared by our daily choices. So be careful. While our words say one thing, our actions might say another — yet the division of our devotion happens within our hearts. And a divided heart is not possible with God. He is an all-in God who gives man an all-in choice. And in the end, everyone is all-in, but this is determined by the object you serve.
DO THIS: Assess the objects you serve today. Make sure it's God and nothing else.
PRAY THIS: God, do an inventory of my life and make known to me any wayward pursuit that is trivial or distracts in my quest of you.
