One or the other...

“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 both God and money.” -Luke 16:13 (NLT)

I was thinking this morning about the fact that I cannot serve both God and mammon. For those who may be new to God's family, 'mammon' basically means riches or [for most of us] money. I listened to a pastor talk about this last night on television-- and this morning in one of my daily devotional readings there was discussion of maintaining the things we have. Perhaps God is telling me something. By that, I mean not just deciding whether or not we can monetarily afford something, but do we have the time and energy to devote to caring for it? Will that take away too much time from serving Jesus? If so, I truly cannot afford it-- whatever it is I may be thinking about.
