Who Do You Serve?

Love this kid and his honesty!
As Bible Adventures start lasted night Keith tells the whole class "I HATE when I get to go buy a prize at the store and then have to come to church. I wanted to stay home for just a little bit and play with my prize!" Keith did so good in school yesterday that his parents took him to the store and he bought a "Huge" T-Rex and he was upset he had to come to churc...h and couldn't play with it. Our Bible lesson last night was on Matthew 6:24 "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." Keith's statement gave me the perfect illustration to share as we talked about choosing the things that are good and righteous and pleasing to God or choosing the things that please us and ignoring the things of God. 

How many of us are just like Keith and say we would rather stay home from church because we want to play with our toys, or we've been working all week and just want to relax or it's been a stressing week and we just need some "Me" time? Having a relationship with God takes times and so often it's time we don't want to give. We don't want to take the time to read our Bibles, spend that sweet hour in prayer or go to church when it takes away from the other things we would rather be doing. My question to the kids last night and my question to you today is, who are you serving? We say we love God and He is our master, but is He really? If He really was our Master, would we have such a hard time focusing on the things of God? 

Anyways, just a thought from a 5 year old......
