Will we serve God or mammon?

We can't lose by being obedient to divine law in thought and action.

Christ Jesus told his followers: "No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon" (Matt. 6:24).

In making this demand, Jesus' conviction drew on his deep understanding of God as the only creator, the only substance and Life, and of man as far different from the wicked, selfish mortal he sometimes appears to be. The Master understood man to be wholly spiritual and good, made in God's likeness. Thus, for us to serve God, Spirit, is natural, and to serve the mammon of materiality is unnatural and destructive.
