We live in a world of eagerness and anxiety, in a world that runs fast. We see many cities like New York and São Paulo where you work 24 hours, where the streets are always full, where the eagerness is incredible, people who have up to three jobs to support their families and make them live a decent life. But, there is a desire that goes beyond all this: “The insatiable desire for money.”
Jesus touched a lot on this subject, and is that we can come to feel so eager for money that we can completely deviate from what is really important: God. That is why in Matthew 6 Jesus tells us that we can not serve two masters and this is referring to money. Why is it that Christ spoke so much on this subject? He did it because most of the men feel great desire for wealth.
