Radical Generosity - Part 3

The third and final reality I see in Luke 16 is this:

Money promises what only God can deliver.

Luke 16:13 says "No servant 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."

I know that no one sets out to literally worship money, but the fact is that if you organize your whole life around acquiring it and pursuing it - you are serving it! The truth is that it owns you, not the other way around.

Somewhere along the line we begin believing that if we just have enough of it, we'll be not only happy, but we'll have peace, contentment, fulfillment, joy, stability, security, and hope. All things that we should be finding in our relationship with God. This is why some of the happiest, most satisfied people you've ever met don't have much money. It's because they have found their true worth in something other than their bank account.


Hands down some of the best truth on money I have ever experienced. The last one hit home hard. I have been subservient to money because of lack of faith and preoccupation with securing it to pay the bills. Not from the perspective of greed or material gain either. I'm saying these truths apply whether you have money or not.

This is some real good stuff man. If you want more people to read it check out Its a free small blog community.
