No one can serve two masters.
When the pain of divorce hits a family, children are often caught in the middle. They feel torn between two parents. When a workplace is dysfunctional, several people can be trying to give orders and ‘be the boss.’ No one can function well in such situations. And we can’t function well in our lives when we’re trying to obey competing impulses or contradictory standards.
There is room in our lives for so many joys, interests, and blessings. But we have to know what matters most. We have to know that God is at the center of our lives, and that … when conflicts arise or choices must be made… we will serve God.
