YOUR WEALTH: DOES IT COME WITH UNDERSTANDING OF THE EXCLUSIVE SERVICE?
No man can be a slave to two owners; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will cleave to the one and despise the other. You cannot be a slave to God and to material things. Matthew 6:24
A wise student of the ultimate Wisdom and Truth, the Scottish author William Barclay, observed the following:
... wealth is always a subordinate good. The Bible does not say that, "Money is the root of all evil," it says that "The love of money is the root of all evils" (1 Timothy 6:10). It is quite possible to find in material things what someone has called "a rival salvation." A man may think that, because he is wealthy, he can buy anything, that he can buy his way out of any situation. Wealth can become his measuring-rod; wealth can become his one desire; wealth can become the one weapon with which he faces life. If a man desires material things for an honourable independence, to help his family and to do something for his fellow-men, that is good; but if he desires it simply to heap pleasure upon pleasure, and to add luxury, if wealth has become the thing he lives for and lives by, then wealth has ceased to be a subordinate good, and has usurped the place in life which only God should occupy.
P.S. Just for Donald: There are mighty few people who think what they think they think, per Robert Henri. What do YOU think about YOUR Exclusive Service?
