“You can’t worship two gods at once. Loving one god, you’ll end up hating the other. Adoration of one feeds contempt for the other. You can’t worship God and Money both.” – Matthew 6:24 (MSG)
We can only worship one master, because there is only one way. In today’s world we face many conflict and decisions we have to make. The decisions that we make depend on where our focus is set. If our focus is set on Christ then we will surely put Him above everything else, otherwise we may start to worship idols of this world.
When talking about worshipping idols, it’s not just having statues that you bow down and pray to, but anything that is placed before then one true God is an idol. Things like money, your car or even family can be your idols.
“Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth.” – Colossians 3:2
There’s no doubt about it, being Christian is not easy, the bible even says that we WILL face trials. No matter what you are going through, set your focus on God and all the problems will just fade in the background. Like in the movies when they use “depth of field”, the character that they are focused on stands out from the rest.
As we focus on God, He will stand out in our life and what happens around us will not matter. Know that God is in control, He knows what’s best for you.
“And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.”- Romans 8:28
