Devotions for July 25, 2017

MATTHEW 6:22-24

22 “Your eye is like a lamp that provides light for your body. When your eye is healthy, your whole body is filled with light. 23 But when your eye is unhealthy, your whole body is filled with darkness. And if the light you think you have is actually darkness, how deep that darkness is!

24 “No one can serve two masters. For you will hate one and love the other; you will be devoted to one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and be enslaved to money.


One of the things that we humans are really great at doing is taking something that God has given us to use for good, and worshipping that thing as if it was God. Simply, we take a good thing and make it a God thing. There is, perhaps, nothing that we do this more more often with than money. What does scripture say about this?


Q: Jesus explicitly says you can’t serve money and serve God. Why was he so forthright with this and address it unlike any of the other sins?

Q: When you reflect on how you live your life, how does money play a part in it?

Q: Does the way you handle money and money issues differ from those who aren’t Christians? Should it? In what ways?
