Big Truth:

Servants of Jesus Have One Master

Joshua 24:16; 1 Samuel 7:3; 1 Kings 18:21; Romans 6:16; James 4:4; 1 John 2:15-17

Bible Verse:

“No one can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one or love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and money.”
