If we live, we live to the Lord; and if we die, we die to the Lord. So, whether we live or die, we belong to the Lord.
(Romans 14:8 (NIV))
Who do you belong to?
Based on Romans 14:8, do you belong to the right master?
No one can serve two masters. 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 both God and Money.
(Matthew 6:24 (NIV))
In this world, there are other things besides money that can become your master. No matter what it may be, when something becomes your master, you belong to it. Just as a slave used to call the person who owned him or her their master, the thing that owns you is your master.
Is it your job? Is it your authority? Perhaps it is your money. It might even be something completely different than these things.
If something is your master, you belong to it. It has control over you. You do not have control over yourself. With this in mind, whom or what do you want to belong to? Do you want your greed for money to control your life or do you want a loving Savior to control your life. Your greed will only cause grief.
Have you had your share of grief? Who do you belong to?
