Matthew 6:24; Two Masters

Treasure in heaven. Healthy eyes. Now choosing between God and Mammon.

Mammon is an Aramaic term for money and possessions. Here it is personalized as if it were an alternative god, an idol. Which it truly is.

Mammon is a sneaky God. You have to live and you have to get stuff. Before you know it your mind is absorbed in Mammon and not focused on God.

You can fool yourself that things aren’t that important to you, but if you observe yourself for a while you will see where your loyalties lie. Hobbies, family, social interaction, food — all good things. But not as important as God. And you can’t have it both ways.

Choose God.
