"No man can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or else he will stand by the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon" (Mt.6:24).
Whom do you love and serve? God, or yourself & the world.
That is the question asked by Our Lord in today's Holy Gospel. It is something that we should contemplate because often times we find ourselves answering the question in favour of the side of mammon.
We should remember that this world is NOT our true home & we are made to know, love, and serve God in this life & to spend eternity with Him in Heaven..That dear friends is the true meaning of life, that the the essence of why we are here. Not to make a million dollars, not to have the best house, not to have what the world considers rich because remember Our Lord's words today, "No man can serve two masters"
Let us seek FIRST the kingdom of God!
