You Cannot Serve Both God And Money

Either you will hate the one or love the other, or you will be devoted to one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money. As I splurged all of my anger out tonight I shared with my mom how frustrated I was that there are non-believers who have a lot of money and myself who is doing well for his kingdom is amounting to nothing.

I’m just going to be real with you, I have always had a love for money. I have also walked down many dark places because of it. Places that no one’s daughter should ever walk down.

Jesus asks the rich man to sell his possessions

I have to do what Jesus? I’ve asked this question as this is a big stronghold I deal with. The young rich man went away sad and to be honest I feel like that young rich man who doesn’t want to give away his possessions. God said you cannot serve both God and money. And even as a Christian I have been so upfront with God and told Him I am feeling.

Lord, I am sharing your Word with people and glorifying your name, what else do you want from me? I’m a Christian why are the people of this world who aren’t even following you receiving so much blessing in their life. Why are you asking me to do these things?
