"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."
Take out some money from your wallet and take a good look at it.
Ever notice that contemporary US paper currency always has an image of a person on the front? Most of these people were national presidents who held considerable power and influence in their day. But none of these people has ever wielded as much control over human beings as money does.
Consider placing a dollar bill in a conspicuous place in your home or office this week. This can serve as a reminder that money desires to master you. Fortunately, we can choose to serve God instead.
