What abundance of evil this love of money is the root of, that four men should venture their lives and souls for about half a crown a piece.
– Matthew Henry
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 (money).
– Jesus Christ, God’s Son, Saviour (Matthew 6:24)
Edit: clarification — we weren’t robbed, sorry for the confusion. I was just struck by his response when he had been robbed, and how love of money can twist people, that they risk so much for so little.
You have had a burglary ???
Whoops! No, not us, Matthew Henry did. Several hundred years ago. I was just struck by his response to it.
I’ll clarify the post. Sorry for the confusion!
Thanks Jon, my mistake, appreciate the clarification brother.
No problem. It was confusing as it was, to say the least. 🙂
See you soon, Lord willing. Looking forward to it.
Thanks Jon, looking forward to it also.
