“You cannot serve God and mammon.” Luke 16:13. Jesus warned that we can become slaves to money. We may not think money means more to us than God, but Jesus didn’t say we must serve God more than money. The issue isn’t what occupies first place in our life, but whether we serve money at all. Of all the masters the soul can choose, there are only two – God and money. Does your checkbook show that Christ is your Master? For a check on you heart, look in your checkbook.
