"No one can serve two masters. Either you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money." - Christ Jesus I'm a charted accountant. I'm 25 and am likely to have children sometime in the next three years. I need to be financially well off in order to pay of my future children's education, (which in Australia for the best education is very expensive, about $30,000 a year). Further still, my parents are very wealthy and when they die I will inherit a considerable fortune. So when I read this part of scripture I am troubled. I want to be able to meet the needs of my future children , to live comfortably, and also serve Christ. I may by no means extravagant with my use of money. Am I serving two masters? Does God want us to be poor? Are all the rich hellhound?
