Diametrically Opposed – Choose Your Side

These orders are diametrically opposed:

The one commands you to walk by faith
The other to walk by sight

 

The one to be humble
The other to be proud

 

The one to set your affections on things above
The other to set them on the things of the earth

 

The one to look at the things unseen and eternal
The other to look at the things seen and temporal

 

The one to have your conversation in Heaven
The other to cleave to the dust

 

The one to be careful for nothing
The other to be full of anxiety

 

The one to be content with such things as you have
The other to enlarge your desires

 

The one to be ready to distribute
The other to withhold

 

The one to look at the things of others
The other to look at ones own things

 

The one to seek happiness in the creator
The other to seek happiness in the creature

 

Is it not plain there is no serving two such masters?

Arthur Pink

 

 

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
Matthew 6:24

 

 

God bless,
