A Quote. Two Slightly Related Maxims. Of Wealth. Of the Love of Money.

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

—Jesus, Matthew 6.24

  • It is not only the wealthy who are devoted to wealth.
  • The rich are often suspected of loving money, but their money buys them many idols with which they might distract themselves. Some of mammon’s purest and most pious worshipers are among the poor.
