A Daily Devotion for Tuesday, January 31

Matthew 6:24

"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."

These words of Jesus speak to me in a very personal way today. I struggle so often with anxiety about things I have no control over. Sometimes it is money, sometimes other things like health or aging. I am not sure how Jesus would categorize these worries, but they are not where he would like for my thoughts and concerns to be focused. I am not being loyal to my faith when I allow other things to take my emotional energy. Jesus is sufficient and should be the first place I turn when I wake up in the morning, and the last thought I hold before dropping off to sleep. I do have only one Master, after all.

Lord, hear my prayer for peace. Lead me through my day. Amen
