This week, our posts are a bit shorter than normal.

The reason for this, is to allow you time to really think about your own life, examining changes you may need/want to make. My goal is to provide you with Bible Verses and guiding questions to help you discover how God can and WANTS to help you accomplish just that.

The Beans:

Hearing God’s Message to YOU:

Read today’s verse once … what word or phrase stands out to you?


Read the verse a second timeWhat part of your life (what circumstance, relationship, struggle etc.) is this word or phrase speaking to?

Pause to pray, write, or just think, before you read today’s verse a final time. 

The Verse:

James 1:17

““No one can serve two masters.

Either you will hate the one and love the other,

or you will be devoted to the one and despise the other.

You cannot serve both God and money.”

The Steam:

What does all of this mean to me/how can I apply that to my life today?

If someone were to ask you, “Who or what do you trust  to provide for your every need?

… We’d like to say, “Our relationship with Jesus,’  …  But if we were being honest, most of us would have to say, job security, my bank account, trust funds etc.

Money is important, it does provide for the basic things we need, like food and shelter. But it’s really easy to fall into habits of worshipping, and depending on money.

We hear a lot about how our self-worth is not tied to our outward appearance, but we should also clarify, our self worth is also NOT tied to our bank account.

What master do you serve?
