Our provision comes from God not the economy

Our Provision Comes from GOD not the Economy
I notice that with this Covid-19 epidemic going on that people seem to be about anywhere between 0 and 20 percent concerned with actually contracting that virus, and they are about 100% to 80% concerned with the economy… how will they get their food when will they go back to work?  When will we start making money again?... and the truth is, this is reliance on the government, not dedication to GOD.  I want to read to you what Jesus said in Matthew chapter 6:24 which is actually quite a hard saying: “No one can serve two masters; for either he will HATE the one and love the other, or else he will be loyal to the one and despise the other.  YOU CANNOT SERVE GOD AND MANNON.”  Another word for mammon would be the economy.  It is known that mammon is money or wealth, it is the economy.  WE DO NOT WORSHIP THE ECONOMY.  But many people are just waiting for the economy to heal itself or waiting for a man to come who is able to restore the economy, so they can go bac to work, so that life can go on as it did from the beginning of time.  Are we looking to JESUS CHRIST for our provision KNOWING that our security, our provision comes from GOD not Mammon?  Or are we sitting at the feet of Mammon, worshiping him and just asking him, “Please Mammon give us back our job, give us back our worldly things, let us go back to all the things we used to do…”  WHO ARE WE PRAYING TO? And who are we worshiping, Jesus Christ or Mammon?  May the grace of Jesus be with you.
