No servant can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or else he will be loyal to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon. Luke 16:13
Thank you Father, that you have exposed the lies of the enemy that tell us that we must provide for ourselves and scramble for wealth in order to be secure or successful. Thank you that you are our provider, the one who makes sure we have all we need, and the one who measures and determines our success.
May the business people of Colorado Springs be set free from service to mammon and empowered to serve the living God through their business activities. Let our eyes be opened to the deception of mammon so that we are no longer caught up in the excessive desire for money and wealth — that is, greed. Let us be aware of the evil that comes from the love of money and let our hearts be captured by the love of God. Lord, give us your perspective on how to conduct our business and empower us to be your representatives and carriers of your kingdom.
