The Gospel reading for today is Luke 16:1-13. It’s a passage in which Jesus focused on money and how it is handled and used. This passage is especially interesting in light of Ha-Joon Chang’s comments.
Verse 13 is one that is familiar to most of us. It’s a verse oft quoted and even more often ignored by Christian and non-Christians alike.
No servant can serve two masters; for either he will hate one and love the other, or else he will be devoted to one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and wealth.
Wealth is a spiritual issue. That makes it a lifestyle issue.
Our focus is where our heart is. Faithfulness to Christ demands one focus. Wealth requires a different focus. To which are you devoted?
