When Jesus had harsh words for the religious leaders, they could reject him or they could take a look at themselves and receive correction. On one occasion he told them this.
All of us will have the opportunity to choose between two masters, two lovers, two houses, and two paths—perhaps more than two choices... Who and what you choose has great importance to getting where you want to be.
Choosing God over money might sound a like a no-brainer to us, but don’t be so self-assured. Why would someone choose money over God? When is the power and acclamation of others more desirable than choosing a difficult situation in obedience to an unseen God? Do you think it’s easy to always choose well?
Money, power and certainty… sometimes it’s irresistible… choosing ain’t always easy.
