Serve God But Not Mammon (LG33)

Luke 16:13  No servant 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..

Once we understand and accept that God owns all the mammon under our care, and that we are only His stewards, then we do not have any more worry. When we love God and understand His will, then we will hate mammon for it has deceived us and has given many brethren sleepless nights, fears, worries, heartaches, pains, doubts in God's words, etc. and it has also caused them to commit all types of sin.

When we serve God, He becomes our Master and He alone decides the amount of Mammon to provide for each of us. We must be faithful in dispensing this mammon to the needs of His numerous ministries, thus making mammon the servant (and not the master) in financing all the ministries.

Luke 16:14  And the Pharisees also, who were covetous, heard all these things: and they derided him.

But covetous Christians, who steal and rob God of His mammon by keeping them as their own personal wealths will reject this Truth and will then persecute all bible believing Christians.

Luke 16:15  And he said unto them, Ye are they which justify yourselves before men; but God knoweth your hearts: for that which is highly esteemed among men is abomination in the sight of God.

Mammon is only the tools or servants given by God to help serve His ministries, but unfortunately covetous Christians made it their masters and lords and some even worship it as their god, thus making it an abomination in the sight of God.
