    When I reflect on today’s text and JD’s sidebar on wealth, I think of the struggle we as Christ followers have between being in the world, but not of the world. It is true, you can not be double minded. You have to choose the way of the world or the way of Christ. You can’t hold on to God and mammon at the same time. However, for me it is not about giving up what you have and taking a vow of poverty, unless that is what God tells you to do. It is about how you consider and use what you have. If you consider what you have as yours and if you don’t use what you have for Kingdom purposes, then you have a problem. Wealth has become your God and that is idolatry. If you consider all that you have as a blessing from Him and you use it for His Kingdom purposes, to love and bless others, then it becomes a means for proclaiming the Gospel. If you think this is a cop out, please say so!
