“For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evils. It is through this craving that some have wandered away from the faith and pierced themselves with many pangs.” 1 Timothy 6:10


“No one can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and money.” Matthew 6:24


Who’s your master?


#2 – Pursuit of Status

  • You are NOT what you do.
  • You are NOT what has been done to you.
  • You are NOT what you can contribute.
  • You ARE who CHRIST has made you to be. You are LOVED. You are priceless to God.


“For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.”
Ephesians 2:10


Who owns your identity?


#3 – Pursuit of Happiness


Happiness = quick fix.


“But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all

 these things will be added to you.” Matthew 6:33


Use Your Time for the Master’s glory

  • Track your time.
  • Change your language.
  • Press Pause.


Your time here on earth has been entrusted to you by God


“So then each of us will give an account of himself to God.”

Romans 14:12
