We are often blind to our love of money until a financial disaster strikes and our fragile world comes crashing down. When we have plenty, we rarely recognize the degree to which our core identity is directly entangled with our physical prosperity. The love of money sneaks into our heart and we don’t realize the depth of our own bondage until after we’ve made it our god. Jesus warned us to be “on guard” against this enemy of our soul.

Jesus said: “Take care, and be on your guard against all covetousness, for one’s life does not consist in the abundance of his possessions.” (Luke 12:15) We don’t want to believe we love money so much that it forms the core of our basic sense of self. But how do we react when we suffer a huge blow to our finances? Does our anxiety go through the roof?

If the lack of money causes us more anxiety than the lack of God’s presence in our life, doesn’t that tell us exactly which master we’ve chosen to give us our sense of worth?

Jesus said, “No servant 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.” (Luke‬ ‭16:13‬) If our deepest trust is in God, money does not have the power to weaken us with anxiety or desire because our identity is in God.

When we value God’s presence above all the riches of the world—our greatest identity is in Him—and we experience supernatural strength and peace that money can’t buy.
