We live in a culture that is filled with anxiety. In fact, according to some of the latest stats, we are among the most anxious people who have ever lived – and that includes adults and children. The strange thing is that we’re anxious about money – and money doesn’t help; it makes things worse. The god of money and stuff – the one Jesus called Mammon – doesn’t politely ask for your attention and devotion – it demands it! Mammon is pushy and demanding of your best. It doesn’t just want a little attention; it wants to hog the spotlight! It will consume your attention, your energy – and your worship, if you let it. Jesus says that you and I have to choose which God we’ll serve – the one who promises the universe – or the One who runs the universe! The alternative to giving God His rightful place is anxiety.
