The master

After Matthew 6:24

Money is an unforgiving

master, stern in demeanor,

whispering, always

whispering of its beauty,

its power, its desirability,

its allure, its promise

of control. The only way

it accomplishes these

things is by growing,

always growing, requiring

and demanding more

of itself. Thou shalt have

no other gods before it,

because money requires

total focus, and love,

and worship, and sacrifice,

and enslavement. It allows

no other master; it tolerates

nothing but obedience.

Serve money or serve God.

You choose.
