“For what does it benefit a man to gain the whole world yet lose his life? What can a man give in exchange for his life?” Mark 8:36-37 HCSB
In our society we need money to live. As Christians, we must never make the acquisition of money the central focus of our lives. Money is a tool, but it should never overwhelm our sensibilities. The focus of life must be squarely on things spiritual, not material things. Whenever we place our love for material possessions above our love for God, or when we yield to the countless other temptations of everyday living, we find ourselves engaged in a struggle between good and evil. Let’s respond to this struggle by freeing ourselves from the temptation to love the world more than we love God.
