Devotion - Wednesday, May 2

In Matthew 6, Jesus states the obvious:  "No one can serve two masters; for he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other."

Most of us live our lives without truly reflecting on the master which we serve.  We go about our lives and our days with a particular pattern and routine.  There are things we know we must do and there are things which we chose to do.

Too often (sadly) our church life and participation fall into a similar category.  We pick and chose a congregation or ministry group because we enjoy the others who have previously picked that location.  We join this club because it does the kinds of things we enjoy doing.

Not that one who carefully examines the master they seek to serve will not also find a group of like-minded servants of God - but there is a clear acknowledgement that this is a place and these are a people who will further one's commitment and devotion to following Jesus.

Martin Luther said, "That to which our heart clings is our god."

To what does your heart cling?  What is the master whom you serve?
