NO SERVANT CAN SERVE TWO MASTERS; FOR EITHER HE
WILL HATE THE ONE AND LOVE THE OTHER, OR ELSE HE
WILL BE LOYAL TO THE ONE AND DESPISE THE OTHER.
YOU CANNOT SERVE BOTH GOD AND *MAMMON.

[“*Mammon” means money]
( LUKE 16:13 *NKJV )

Dear Friend,

This verse is not condemning those who love God and
are blessed by Him with Worldly possessions, after all God
wants His Children to prosper.  For it is written; BELOVED, I PRAY
THAT YOU MAY PROSPER IN ALL THINGS AND BE IN
HEALTH, JUST AS YOUR SOUL PROSPERS.
( 3 JOHN 2 )

However this verse is a warning to us about the love of
money.  For money can take God’s place in our lives,and
even become our master if we are not careful!  Further, it
is written; 
THE LOVE OF MONEY IS THE ROOT OF
ALL KINDS OF EVIL, FOR WHICH SOME HAVE STRAYED
FROM THE FAITH IN THEIR GREEDINESS, AND PIERCED
THEMSELVES THROUGH WITH MANY SORROWS.
( 1 TIMOTHY 6:10 )

I’ll bet that you know someone who is consumed by the
power of money, and will go to any length to get it.  Sadly
for them the love of money becomes their God and it is an
empty god that can never bring them peace, love, hope or
faith.  They spend their time worrying about those who
would take their assets from them, and truly do not enjoy
the real blessings of life!

So Friend, enjoy the things your money can buy, but
also always remember the one who blessed you with it.
For it is through Him that all blessings flow!  Amen!

With My Love & Prayers,
your servant Allen
