Matthew 6:24 (NLT)
24"No one can serve two masters. For you will hate one and love the other, or be devoted to one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money.

Jesus is teaching about money and possessions. A servant was to follow his master and pay attention to his needs. So if a servant was following after one master; the other master would soon be jealous and unleash punishment upon the servant. Soon the servant would have to choose to be devoted to one and hate the other.

The question to ask from Matthew 6:24 is who or what will you let rule your life? And what are you willing to give up? You might be forced to decide to leave everything behind. Jesus said in Luke 14:33, “So no one can become my disciple without giving up everything for me.” The choice comes down to be is Jesus the one you are willing to serve? Or do you look for one of the many things that are available in the world to choose from. There is only one correct answer according to Jesus; that one true answer is our Father in heaven. Giving our devotion to anything else or to anyone else, means that what we pursue on earth is destined for decay, death, or destruction. In the strongest terms possible, Jesus reminds us that money can't be our god if we want to serve the Lord God Almighty. Pray and let God know that you want to serve Him. Let God know that you desire to follow His ways and be obedient to Him. Pray that your heart will learn devotion to Him and not seek after foolish ways. Ask for His guidance that your footsteps may be secure.
