No one can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be loyal to the one and despise the other… Matthew 6:24, NKJV
The Bible warns us of trying to do too much at once—God calls it trying to serve two masters. Just try to follow the directions of two people at the exact same time. Stand between two people, letting them shout conflicting directions to you and try to follow them. Your feet will wobble as you turn this way and that. You will begin to go in one direction only to turn and stumble the other way. Your walk, if you make progress at all, will be slow and ineffective. This is what happens when you are torn between the way of the world and the way of Christ.
To avoid a walk that is slow and ineffective, don’t wobble between the world and Christ. Live for God and God alone and life will be new every day.
What steps do you take to stay on track?
