Mammon and Love Discarded

Love’s a thing and God’s the thing maker.  People are still scrambling to find an excuse to indulge their desires for worldly possessions, even though there is ample evidence that things we love are an obstacle to the kingdom.

It is the intelligent thing they say.  Go to school, marry who you love, get and keep a job, buy a home, have children, are all of this life and world even though having children (for example) is a divine command (part of the earliest commands).  More than money, education, and family is a master who has the whole world in his hands. Think not that you are being asked to choose between the world and God.  There is no comparison.  Think not that you are being asked to judge people who may seem to be putting the world ahead of God.

Beware that love like Yeshua’s does not scare you into the bondage of nothing.  His love is our love, poured into our hearts for our pouring.  That love can not be wasted on things.
