You Cannot Serve Two Masters – Matthew 6:19-24

I’ve been reflecting on how quickly I put the good things around me
on a pedestal, on par or close to God.
Two masters one might say.
I don’t think there’s anything wrong with appreciating
your work, health, beauty, relationships, love, food, etc.
But I can’t honestly say that I know a single person
who is genuinely fulfilled by those treasures alone!
After all, the thrill of a new dress or vacation tends
to leave after a few days/weeks/months.
We can keep filling our hearts with things made on this
Earth [I know I’ve tried] but they just don’t satisfy.
I think it’s because we’re not meant to find our meaning in our blessings,
but rather in the ​[​giver]​ of our blessings.

“Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth
and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal;
but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth
nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal.
For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.
No one can serve two masters;for either he will hate the one and love the other,
or else he will be loyal to the one and despise the other.
You cannot serve God and money​.”

Matthew 6:19-21,​ 24

“If I find in myself desires which nothing in this world can satisfy,
the only logical explanation is that I was made for another world.”
C.S. Lewis, Mere Christianity
