Read The Lesser Blessings, by Rick Whitter, at Bible Study Tools.
"Let me explain. When most American talk about “being blessed,” they are talking about material things: houses, cars, boats, jobs. Without doubt, these things are provided by God – and they are blessings. But sometimes the acquisition of these blessings has cost us something of much greater value. While it is not always the case, some lesser blessings cost us greater blessings. We have traded. If financial gain is the best blessing you have, you are not experiencing God’s best. According to Jesus, you can’t serve both God and money."
No one can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and wealth.
For what does it profit a man to gain the whole world, and forfeit his soul?
