Most of us are willing to do whatever it takes to get money. Such as lying, stealing, murder, adultory, idolatry and etc. Some go so far as to be willing to make moral compromises out of convenience. Prostituting themselves, and practicing witchcraft.
And some are even willing to sell their very own soul or sacrifice others for a substantial large amount.Those who have this mindset serve mammom, (money). Mammon is the god of money, which brings wealth, material luxuries and physical comfort. It’s who they serve and worship.
The god of money is spiritually the devil. It’s his currency for economic transaction, trade. Since he is the god of this world relative to sin. The primary use of money is for selfishly giving in exchange for something in return. Man will naturally go with the tendencies of his sinful nature for the use of money in a selfish manner.
While money in and of itself is neutral, and not evil. It’s neither good or bad. But can be used for good and bad purposes. “For it’s the love of money is the root of all evil.” The worshiping of money through living purely within its means against God.
Thus, money is what God permits. Due to the consequence of Adam and Eve’s choice in disobedience.
Instead of living in an absolute utopia to freely share and give selflessly one to another, man would have to work for the sweat of his brow as part of the curse of sin. Where what he needs and want would no longer just be freely given or shared to him by his neighbour.
But he will have to earn it through the hardship and labour of his work, in order to make a purchase as a means to get what he needs from his neighbour.
The Bible says, “No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.”
Will you choose this day who you will serve?
