Matthew 6:24 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

God and Money. 24 [a]“No one can serve two masters. He will either hate one and love the other, or be devoted to one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon.

Dependence on God.[b]

Footnotes:

  1. 6:24 Mammon: an Aramaic word meaning wealth or property.
  2. 6:25–34 Jesus does not deny the reality of human needs (Mt 6:32), but forbids making them the object of anxious care and, in effect, becoming their slave.

Luke 16:13 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

13 No servant can serve two masters.[a] He will either hate one and love the other, or be devoted to one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon.”

Footnotes:

  1. 16:13 The third conclusion is a general statement about the incompatibility of serving God and being a slave to riches. To be dependent upon wealth is opposed to the teachings of Jesus who counseled complete dependence on the Father as one of the characteristics of the Christian disciple (Lk 12:22–39). God and mammon: see note on Lk 16:9. Mammon is used here as if it were itself a god.

1 John 2:15-16 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

15 Do not love the world or the things of the world.[a] If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. 16 For all that is in the world, sensual lust,[b] enticement for the eyes, and a pretentious life, is not from the Father but is from the world.

Footnotes:

  1. 2:15 The world: all that is hostile toward God and alienated from him. Love of the world and love of God are thus mutually exclusive; cf. Jas 4:4.
  2. 2:16 Sensual lust: literally, “the lust of the flesh,” inordinate desire for physical gratification. Enticement for the eyes: literally, “the lust of the eyes,” avarice or covetousness; the eyes are regarded as the windows of the soul. Pretentious life: literally, “pride of life,” arrogance or ostentation in one’s earthly style of life that reflects a willful independence from God and others.
