Serving Two Masters

 “No one can serve two masters, since either he will hate one and love the other, or he will be devoted to one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money.” ~Matthew‬ ‭6:24

We’re all probably pretty familiar with Jesus’ words in this verse.

But what if we expanded our application of this verse to go far beyond our relationship with money, to also include anything that would seek to master us other than the Lord?

Platform-building and seeking followers.

Popularity and esteem.

Comparison and competition.

Striving to be the best mom only in order to impress all the other moms out there.

Hustling to make sure your business gets to the next level immediately.

Endeavoring to grow in your theological knowledge not to know God more, but in order to make other people admire you.

Idolizing the perfect house, job, husband, or family.

Bowing down to the god of prestige and self-help.

We could go on and on. The principle behind Jesus’ words extends far beyond how you view money to anything that would seek to overthrow God’s rightful place in your life.

Let’s ask ourselves today:

What master are we bowing down to?

And what are we going to do about it?
