Competing Loyalties
Matthew 6:24

The Upward Look

“No one can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will hold to one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon.” Matthew 6:24 NASB

There are conflicts and compromises when a person has two bosses. Each boss pulls the person in a different direction. The person faces competing loyalties as to which he will obey and serve. Jesus states that a righteous person cannot serve God and other things, such as money or possessions. The person must choose to be righteous serving only God or to be unrighteous seeking earthly treasures.

Lord Jesus, I pledge my allegiance to serve only You. Help me to follow You by completely obeying Your commands found in the Bible.
