Jesus made it very clear in today’s reading you must pick who you will serve. Either you need to look to God and serve Him, or you can look to the desires of this world. In Luke 16:13 Jesus said, “No servant can serve two masters. Either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money.” Jesus is not saying that working to make money is bad, He is saying it is bad when you make money the most important thing in your life. Trying to justify you need to have money to serve God is nothing more than an excuse. God doesn’t need your money, He wants our obedience and willingness to serve with all we have including our most important possession: Time.
