The Lamb

“The lamp of the body is the eye. If therefore your eye is good, your whole body will be full of light. But if your eye is bad, your whole body will be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in you is darkness, how great is that darkness! “No one can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or else he will be loyal to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon.

Mathew 6:22-24

In this passage of Scripture, it seems to best to understand v. 22-23 from a spiritual perspective. Jesus words are best understood by thinking of the “spiritual eyes” of our hearts rather than the physical eyes in our heads. Therefore, we learn here that the condition of our spiritual eyes is very important.

When our spiritual eyes are clouded by greed and the love of money, it affects the totality of our relationship with God. The love of money will lead to eyes which are unable to see from a spiritual or heavenly perspective. This can lead to a disastrous downward spiral. We have often observed people who commit crimes or abandon their families as a result of greed and vice. The Christian is not invulnerable to sin of greed and must avoid it at all costs.

No wonder Paul said that “the love of money is the root of all kinds of evil.”  (1 Timothy 6:10) Jesus implores us here to serve God and not money. He simply states that we cannot serve both. So, who are you serving, God or money?
