“No one can serve two masters. 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 both God and Money."
~ Matthew 6:24
|In God We Trust|
Jesus made it very clear that we cannot serve two masters. If I’m writing for Christ, then I can’t be concerned about the income that comes from it. If I’m writing to make more money, then I can’t be writing for Christ. Do you ever lose sight of the goal? Do you ever take your eyes from the prize? It can be tempting to do so, but I firmly believe deep down, that God will take care of my family, and yours, and He will use our writing to bring Him glory. And if it happens to be His will that we can earn a living from it, that would be awesome, but if not, we should still take heart in the fact that we are working for Him, and Him alone.
Now that I am re-focused and trusting God with our problems, it's actually much easier to write, and not nearly as stressful. It's funny how that works.
