Is Money Your God?

Whatever controls you, or ultimately determines your decisions, is your god.

What is god in your life? Do you have a price? Can you be bought?

Will enough money get you to do something you know is wrong? Then you are serving money -- you will do what it tells you.

No one can serve two masters, according to Jesus, as recorded in Matthew 6:24.

24 "No one can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or else he will be loyal to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon.

You must choose who your god will be. If you choose Jesus Christ -- you cannot make every decision based on the financial bottom line, and still claim He is your Lord.

If you claim to be a Christian but do not worship God by giving substantially to Him -- it is already clear that money is your god. There are no alternatives.

If you say you do not give to God so that you can feed your children -- maybe your children are your god.

If your reason for not worshiping God with your giving is so you can pay your house or car note -- you obviously have put them ahead of God.

Most Christians think it is awful that someone would commit adultery, or fornication, if someone paid them. But, a Christian who moves simply to get a higher-paying job, without regard to God's guidance, is guilty of the same sin: serving money.

Will you only do God's will if it benefits you? Are you like a prostitute -- only willing to perform if you get paid enough?

Are you a hired lover -- or a genuine lover of God?
