“No one can serve two masters. Either you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money.”
Matthew 6:24 (NIV)

Every now and then we hear about a man who secretly has two families. As a father and husband I’m busy enough with all the family activities that one family demands. How a man is able to manage two families, while dealing with trying to keep this secret, is beyond me. Besides being immoral, it must be really challenging. Thinking of this reminds me of what Jesus said in Matthew 6:24: “‘No one can serve two masters. Either you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money.” Jesus wasn’t speaking about having two families but it does help us understand the point. For many in Jesus’ day, and certainly for many in our day, people were driven by their love for money – the love of material possessions and getting wealthy in the things of the world. If this is so for the life of one of His followers, inner conflict will result. We cannot be driven by both a love of money and a love for Jesus. Jesus must be our everything.
These have been words from the heart.
