Love God – Not Money

Is your relationship with the Lord separate from your relationship with money?

The Bible clearly teaches that believers in Jesus Christ have a personal relationship with God. He is our Master. We are His servants. So, we guard our hearts against any idols slipping in– especially money. Jesus said, “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.”

You see, the problem with loving money is two-fold. First, money becomes your master instead of God. Matthew 6:24 says, No one can serve two masters. Either you’ll hate the one and love the other, or you’ll be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money.” Second, money doesn’t love you back. It’s just a piece of paper that can be gone in a second. A right relationship with the Lord means looking to Him as our rightful and only true Master. We willingly submit to him knowing that we’re temporary stewards over all that He provides for us. This removes the pride of ownership from our hearts. We’re then evaluated on whether we’re faithful – not successful with money. When we get this relationship sorted out, we can love God with all of our heart, mind, soul, and strength. We can steward money without worldly emotional attachment. By chasing money out of our hearts and inviting God to sit on that throne, we begin the journey to become good and faithful servants of the one true Master. We don’t hate money, we just keep it far from our heart.
