Matthew 6:24 (KJV)

Matthew 6:24 states, "No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon."  

In 1 John 2:15-16 we read, "Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.  For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world."

Mammon is commonly defined as riches or wealth.  In spiritual terms, mammon is not restricted to monetary items, but also includes any type of worldly gain.  Any allurement of the world, the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eye, or the pride of life, is mammon.  Have you ever wondered why I Timothy 6:10 states “For the love of money is the root of all evil”?  When I was younger, I wrestled with this verse and wondered how the love of money could possibly be the root cause of all the evil that is on the face of the earth.  If we think of the “love of money” in terms of the love of any type of worldly gain, then we can understand how it is the root of all evil.  In Matthew 6:24, Jesus did not issue a recommendation that we should not serve God and mammon, but instead stated the fact that it is impossible for us to serve God and mammon.

"But godliness with contentment is great gain."  I Timothy 6:6
