“No one can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other.  You cannot serve God and mammon (material wealth).” Matthew 6:24  For many people, God and money run “neck and neck” as their first priority. Making money and spending money becomes the center of their life and they actually become a slave to money.  The solution – become more generous.  Giving money to Church and charity frees us from slavery to money and from making money a “god” before God.
