Life In The Balance
There is no doubt that we live in difficult times. There are forces, sometimes self-imposed, that tend to throw us off balance. We’re living and breathing but that’s about all.
So why is this? How have we let our lives get so out of control? Perhaps we’re chasing after the wrong things – things that we think will bring peace and contentment but can only fail to deliver.
Jesus spoke of the danger of doing this. He said that man cannot served mammon (that which separates us from God) and God at the same time. He further said that if we attempt this, we will wind up serving one and hating the other.
He’s saying that we can’t have everything. We are free to decide which one, but serving both is out of the question!
So, if you find yourself just existing then perhaps you need to decide – mammon or God. Who should I serve and why? A little prayer might just be in order here.
