The Lord of Heaven
During the giving of the Law of Moses, Jehovah described Himself as a jealous God. For this cause and others, the Savior warned that one cannot serve God and mammon, the Aramaic word for possessions or wealth. John taught that it is lust and pride that cause one to covet these things and that such mammon will pass away with those who have embraced it. It is unfortunate that the children of the material world have often been more skillful in their pursuit of mammon than the children of light have been with regard to the true and everlasting riches. In His Parable of the unjust steward, the Savior enjoined equal or better effort at spiritual pursuits, which are, by far, more rewarding. The knowledge of this should make it far easier to hate the master of mammon and to love the Lord of Heaven.
