Thought to Ponder: Who’s your Master?

Thought to Ponder: Who’s your Master?

MATTHEW 6:24, “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.”
MATTHEW 6:22-24

Jesus is speaking of spiritual vision. If we keep our attention (eye) single upon Jesus, the Word, then all that we will be filled with is the light of His Word (Jn. 1:1-14; Ps. 119:105). The key to victory is this singleness of purpose (Phil. 3:13). The strength of the laser lies in the fact that all of the light is concentrated on one single point. Likewise, the strength of the Christian lies in how single his or her vision is upon Jesus, “the author and finisher of our faith.” (Heb. 12:1-3)
In Matthew 6:24, the Lord amplifies this by saying that we cannot serve two masters. Why is this so? Because: we will cleave to one more than the other and can’t serve both with all of our heart. God wants us to serve Him with all of our heart.
You may be wondering how you can I do this? Answer: Trust God! Matthew 6: 33, Jesus goes on to say that He will supply all of our need when we seek first the Kingdom of God. All of these other things (food and clothing etc.) will be added unto us. If we will simply put God and His Kingdom first in every area of our lives, He will add to us all the wealth that we need. It’s when we covet after money, things and even people that we “pierce ourselves through with many sorrows” (1 Tim. 6:10). Put God to the test today. Put Him first in every area of your life and see if He won’t provide all the things you need for a blessed and fulfilled life.
