If you had to pick

No one can serve two masters…For you will be devoted to one and despise the other…You cannot serve both God and money. Matt. 6:24

Devotion to God requires flexibility in what we expect from Him and what we expect from our lives. Serving God means that we submit our lives to the context of His message and kingdom. Our status and position, prosperity and roles are flexible arrangements that serve His purposes. When we serve God we can relax in His joy and freedom. When we serve money we end up obsessing over making it, keeping it, and losing it.

Lord, I choose to serve You!
