A Prayer for Tuesday, April 12, 2011

“Two Masters”

O God, we confess our sin of limping between two opinions, of trying to have it both ways, and of trying to serve two masters.

Forgive us for how we so often try to have you serve our money.

Prod, push, shove, and drive us to have our money serve you.

If we really want to know how we regard you, O God, perhaps we need to look at how we regard our money in comparison to how we regard you; give us the courage to do so honestly.

And then, O God, form and shape our hearts and our lives so that it is you that we serve—you and you only.


“No one can serve two masters; for a slave will either hate the one and love the other, or be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and wealth.” (Matthew 6:24)
