Are you worshiping God or money?
 Disciples of Christ have chosen God as their master, not money, nor the needs of the body, nor anything of earth. They are set their eyes on Him and His glory (Matt 6:22-24 “The light of the body is the eye. Therefore if your eye is good, your whole body will be full of light. But if eye is bad, your whole body is darkness! “No one can serve two masters, for either he hate the one, and love another, or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. You can serve God and money.”) Their priorities are to be right. Their chief concern should be God’s kingdom and God’s RIGHTEOUSNESS. They should care more about that about their own needs. To seek for God’s kingdom cannot mean that disciples should try to enter it, for they are already in it. It means to seek the good of God’s kingdom, it’s glory it’s power and rule of God more and more in themselves and in other people. (Compare Rom 2:7 to those who by patient continuance in doing in doing good seek for glory and honor and immortality he will give eternal life.) What is it to seek for God’s righteousness? It does not mean to make justification, believers are already justifies (Rom 5:1) It means to make His righteousness one of our chief concerns, to seek to be righteous, to have the right style of living that only He can produce in us, to see His righteousness fulfills in others and in our relationship with others. Those who put God first in all things will find that God takes care of them and gives them all they need ( Phil 4:19) “Treasures in heaven” – the rewards God gives up His servants to God and acts of kindness and mercy to men. We can do the things on which will have eternal results. We can live for the sake of eternity rather for our brief time here. The Lord Jesus does not want us to love this world and its treasures, but set our hearts on heaven. (Col 3:12) They are only two possible two possible kinds of treasures – the perishing ones in this world or the eternal ones in heaven. Good spiritual eyes see things as they are and desire the glory of God, the things of the kingdom of the light and eternal rewards He gives to those who serve Him. Bad spiritual eyes do not see things as they really are, and desire the things of time, the things related to sin, self, and darkness. They see no glory of Christ and no value in salvation (2 cor 4:4). Any person, even one who thinks he is christen, who is serving money or worldly wealth of any kind, and says he is serving God, is either deceived or a liar. The service of God is utterly, eternally opposed to the service of anything else. Various countries have various gods and idols, but money is the universal idol of the world, the thing that people everywhere love, bow down to, serve. The believer in Christ must renounce this idol as they do every other idol ( Col 3:5; I john 5;21; Luke 14;33).
