You Can’t Love Both God and Money

Read: Luke 6:1-15

We take in millions of messages every day. Advertisers use clever slogans, pretty people and cute animals to entice us with whatever they are trying to sell, whether it’s burgers or cars. Want to look powerful? Drive a powerful car. Want to attract hot girls? Wear designer cologne.

When we let advertisers convince us that our possessions define us, we give greed a foothold that will only lead to destruction. What defines us will sustain us. Popularity fades and fads change. Material items will never be enough to fulfill us forever.

Only God’s love lasts forever and never changes. When we let Him define our lives instead of the next best thing, we will be sustained forever.

 

Think About:

1. Who’s influencing your spending decisions more: the Bible or advertisers? Why?

2. How can you let God define your finances today? 

 

Pray:

Dear Jesus, help me to be content with what I have. Show me how to filter the messages I hear each day and remain focused on You.
