{Matthew 6:24, ESV}

“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.

Greed hides itself from the victim. The money god's modus operandi includes blindness to your own heart…

Jesus warns people far more often about greed than about sex, yet almost no one thinks they are guilty of it. Therefore we should all begin with a working hypothesis that “this could easily be a problem for me.” If greed hides itself so deeply, no one should be confident that this is not a problem for them. How can we recognize and become free from the power of money to blind us?

Timothy Keller, Counterfeit Gods, pp. 52-53
