God or Things?

There are many things in life that are true every day. If I throw something up in the air, I know it will fall back to the ground. We can see the sun shine during the day, but not during the night. Ice cream tastes sweet. Lemons taste sour.
In Matthew 6:24, Jesus reminds us that we can’t love both God and things such as money or our possessions. The last part of this verse says, “So you cannot serve God and Money at the same time.” This is something that is true every day. We cannot ignore it. We must decide every day to serve God.
Our Bible Reading today tells us that true freedom and blessings come only from God. Verse 37 says, “Lord, don’t let me look at worthless things. Help me live your way.” Every day we can choose to love worthless things. Or, we can choose to love God and follow His way.
Ask God to help you love Him more today. Then follow Him with your whole heart.
