Know this, YOU can’t walk with God and hold hands with Satan at the same time.
No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.
Mammon refers to wealth, money, or property. No one can serve two masters because a time will come when they make opposing demands. JESUS advises us to invest in our future with Him by giving of ourselves, while MAMMON encourages us to collect material objects for our present enjoyment.
No servant can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.
Mammon…..true riches: This is the development of:
He that is faithful in that which is least is faithful also in much: and he that is unjust in the least is unjust also in much.
Small examples of selfishness now, results in greater selfishness later. Small examples of generosity now, results in greater generosity later.
The Bottom Line Between the Lines Is:
14 Now therefore fear the Lord, and serve him in sincerity and in truth: and put away the gods which your fathers served on the other side of the flood, and in Egypt; and serve ye the Lord.
15 And if it seem evil unto you to serve the Lord, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.
The Lord Jesus Christ loves you. If you are reading this and do not know Jesus Christ as your personal Savior, I would like to extend this invitation to you to receive the gift of salvation today. You can do so by praying and truly believing the prayer below, or by praying to God in your own Words.
I confess that I have sinned against You, and I know that there is nothing I can do by my own efforts to change my condition. I believe that Jesus Christ shed His blood and died on the cross for my sins; And that He rose from the grave on the Third Day to grant me eternal life. I know You love me, God, and I love You. I place my faith and trust only in You to conform my heart to Your will; And to order my steps everyday, from this day forward. Thank You , Lord, for saving me.
