Two Masters?

Re:Verse reading–Matthew 6:19-34 (day four) “You cannot serve God and Money” (vs 24)  He does not say you should not.  He says you can’t.  Some of us will try but eventually our lives will only provide further proof that the human heart is incapable of dual loyalties.  God created us for exclusive love.  Whole-hearted, brakes off!  Our hearts cannot balance two masters or two loves.  “The one thing that God can NEVER be is moderately important” said CS Lewis.  It will not work!  The double-minded man will NEVER experience the help that God has promised. (James 1:5)  “Go ‘all in’ or go home” says Jesus.  Assume for a moment that Jesus is correct!  How would one tell whether this exclusive love relationship with God is established and operating?  What would the signs be for a “you shall love the Lord your God with ALL your heart” kind of friendship? The heart is deceitful.  So is money.  Be careful here.
