Quite possibly the most popular idol in our culture is the god called more. Our culture believes that more is better so it worships money, acquisitions, and possessions. Unfortunately, Christians are not immune to this way of thinking, and when we buy into this mentality, it prevents us from having more commitment to Christ. That’s why the one god that Jesus specifically indicated we have denounce if we are going to make the Lord God our Master is the god called more.
19 “Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal, 20 but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. 21 For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. 22 “The eye is the lamp of the body. So, if your eye is healthy, your whole body will be full of light, 23 but if your eye is bad, your whole body will be full of darkness. If then the light in you is darkness, how great is the darkness! 24 “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.”
