Money tests our hearts. Some people are clearly idolatrous in their outlook towards money. Its very common in our world. But more subtly, these days, we get a lot of preachers subtly encouraging people to go after money as long as they give 10% to their church budget. We also come under pressure to go after the money first so we can serve God one day in the future. But what did Jesus say?
No one 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, despise, despise the other.
You cannot serve God and riches x3
Jesus said you cannot serve God and riches.
