Matthew 6:24

King James Version (KJV)

 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.

You have to make a choice! You can either serve the world and its ways of doing things or you can serve God the Father. God’s ways are better and when you stay constant in His Word then your choice will be easier to make. Everyday we get put into a place of choice. We can either have it our way or we can have it God’s way.

Who do you love more? Do you love the world and its ways or do you love God and His ways? The choices we make will tell you which master you serve. You can’t serve God and Mammon. Beyond popular belief, Mammon is not just money. The New Oxford American Dictionary defines Mammon – wealth regarded as an evil influence or false object of worship and devotion. It was taken by medieval writers as the name of the devil of covetousness, and revived in this sense by Milton. Mammon deals with the covetousness of man. We understand and know that one of the commandments tell us not covet. Why? Because when you start to covet you begin to worship that item more and you make that your master.

Television, food, video games and much more can be mammon. It is possible to love something so much that we give our devotion to it. To help stop such a tragedy, we first need to recognize it, ask forgiveness, seek God’s face and replace the mammon with the Word of God. Make God your Master, after all He is the one who can truly fulfill you. Seek Him and His Word as your souls first necessity.
