If you Love Him, Trust Him!

On what was called “Black Monday”, October 19, 1987, when the Dow plunged 508 points, at the request of the Pacific Stock Exchange, a suicide watch was placed on the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco. During the same week, in Miami, a longtime speculator who lost large sums in the market's crash walked into the local Merrill Lynch brokerage office and requested to see his broker and the office manager. He opened his briefcase, took out a handgun, and shot and killed the two men and himself. A friend commented, “His entire life was devoted to the market, and it collapsed around him. The god that he trusted had let him down.” This incident dramatizes that we cannot serve God and mammon. Mammon is an Aramaic word, mamona, meaning wealth or property. Serving wealth brings anxiety. Serving God brings peace.
