Am I Mastering Money or Is It Mastering Me?

Ever feel like money, and the stuff that it can buy, dominates your life, your thinking, and your decision making?

Jesus talks more about money in the Gospels than Heaven and Hell combined. Probably because he knows that the things we treasure have incredible potential to steal our love away from God. As he said in Matthew 6:24...

“No one can serve two masters. For you will hate one and love the other; you will be devoted to one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and be enslaved to money."

Now, does this mean money is inherently evil? No! Money is a terrible master, but a powerful servant. We can either be mastered by our money, or we can use our money to serve God.

After all, "Where our treasure is, there our hearts will be also." (verse 21). Let's use our money to direct our hearts to be all the more in love with our Savior Jesus!
