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
