Luke 13:13

by Rev Joel Yong

Luke 13:13 records Jesus as saying “No servant can serve two masters. Either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and Money.”

Jesus pointed out the fallibility of humans to become slaves to wealth that they have accumulated. The riches they have make it tough to focus on God as the center of their lives. Note that the Bible never teaches that it is wrong to have wealth – many texts speak of the likes of Abraham and others being blessed with many possessions. However the danger is when these blessings of wealth distract us from the Source of blessings – God Himself. Choose today, to serve God and not money.
