This Sunday: Mammon
August 18th, 2015 | John Chandler
This Sunday we’ll continue our discussion of The Sermon on the Mount with Matthew 6:19-24.
“Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moths and vermin destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moths and vermin do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.
“The eye is the lamp of the body. If your eyes are healthy,your whole body will be full of light. But if your eyes are unhealthy, your whole body will be full of darkness. If then the light within you is darkness, how great is that darkness!
“No one can serve two masters. Either you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money.
What does it mean to store up treasures in a day of refrigerators and Costco? What does it mean to care for our eyes? And what is Mammon, anyway?
More on Sunday!
