Luke 16:13, 12:34 (KJV)
No servant can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon… For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.

When Satan made his first appearance to man, he came as one of the beasts of the field and not as Satan, this made it easy for man to engage in a conversation with him, and it eventually led to the fall. Today, Satan is out with the same subtleness in a new form called Mammon, his agenda, however, is the same.

What is this mammon?

16:11 (KJV) “If therefore ye have not been faithful in the unrighteous mammon, who will commit to your trust the true riches?”

Mammon means earthly riches. This on its own is not bad, but in the hand of a bad Satan, it is a god that destroys.

How does mammon (earthly riches) become a god?

Basically, through unfaithfulness. According to Merriam-Webster Dictionary, to be unfaithful means to be disloyal, not adhering to vows, to be untrustworthy. However, considering the root words, that is ‘UN’ meaning without or lacking, and ‘FAITH’ meaning trust, one could define unfaithful as lacking faith or without faith. Hence, when a man’s faith is turned from God to earthly riches, he makes mammon his god.

Unawares, many have turned from God and have yielded their lives to Satan in the pursuit of earthly wealth and riches at the expense of their pursuit of God.

Go into today knowing that whenever your trust shifts to earthly riches, you are empowering Satan’s lordship over you.

Confess your unfaithfulness and make up your mind to be faithful with earthly riches by trusting in God alone.
