Jesus said to his disciples, “No one can serve two masters!”
So what did He mean? Was he talking about serving multiple people such as our parents, teachers and work managers?
No, Jesus was using the word symbolically to extend its meaning to such things as our material wealth.
Jesus was warning those whose greater love is for earthly goods or services, rather than the love of God. You cannot be a servant of both God and money.
Have I allowed my desire for worldly wealth to hold greater esteem than my love for God?
Lord Jesus, remove my selfishness. Help me to see more clearly, your eternal rewards.
Prayer: Joy (Mother Teresa)
I smile, and the world smiles with me.
I laugh, and the world laughs too.
I praise you, dear God, and the world breaks out in song.
For you are the source of my joy,
the wellspring of my love,
the key to my compassion.
Be with me today, tomorrow, and forever,
so that I may bring your joy to all I meet.

Listen and reflect… pause and talk.
