“No one can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and wealth” (Matthew 6:24).

Too many think they can multitask.  You may do two things at one time, but neither one will be done at one hundred percent.  Who is your master?  Do you notice that Jesus does not give the option of no master?  We were created to serve.  We do serve.  The rich serve their wealth.  We are slaves to someone or something.  But it cannot be two things. It is either/or. Who is your master?  Choose wisely.

Lord, You know I struggle and in fact, serve many masters.  Guide me in the way of life so that I serve You first as my Lord and God.  Help me to see it clearly as my first priority.  Where my loyalty is mixed, help me to make it clear and right.  Lord, this world is temporary and filled with lies.  I too often believe them to be permanent and the truth.  Help me shed this nonsense to serve You first.

Lord Jesus, You are my Lord and Master.  I know this, but then I am distracted and worship other masters.  Help me to learn to serve and obey You above all.  Clear my mind so that I can practice good priorities.  Help me now and always to walk with You in all godliness.  You know what I need, and You provide all that is needed; help me to humbly submit each day to You, my Lord, Savior, and God.  Amen.
