Work Week Word-Monday’s Word-”Trying To Love Two, Ain’t Easy To Do”
Trying To Love Two, Ain’t Easy To Do
No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.
In 1976, William Bell wrote a song entitled, “Tryin’ To Love Two” which became a Top 40 hit and #1 on the R&B charts. The song tells of a man that has come to grips that loving two women during the same time is running him crazy. He says he has a love at home that is the sweetest woman in the world; but has another one that’s crazy about him. He is caught in a triangle and can’t go anywhere. He goes on to say that he needs to be three men in one…one to work, one to stay home and one to go with his mistress. Finally, he says he had fun when it started out, but it’s becoming to be a job that is too much for him. He began to notice that when he was spending time with one, he was missing out with the other; when one was happy, the other was sad. He probably took them to the same places at different times and forgot he had been there prior to going. Let’s not forget the man had to work in order to pay for all of his escapades. In the words of Pastor Jasper Williams, Jr., “no man can adequately LOVE to woman…he may THINK he can, but he can’t”. Yes, Mr. Bell had to find out the hard way that loving two people is a hard thing to do.
No man can serve two masters…NO MAN. While you are with one, you are leaving the other alone. When you tell one “I love you” at the same precise time, you are saying “I hate you” to the other. What you are going to do is run yourself crazy. You may think you are getting over, but you aren’t. It may seem nice when you start, but you will end up hurting yourself in the end. You think you will have everything right with the person you are with until you start calling someone the wrong name. How will you be able to take someone out knowing that the other person may be there? Same with our relationship with God. He likes to have time with you. He wants to be spoiled, just like anyone else. When He doesn’t get the attention, He becomes jealous (He said he is, don’t look at me like that); you can’t love Him and the world at the same time. Trying to love two, ain’t easy to do.
Family, He wants you to make a choice…just like being caught in a love triangle. He is standing there in front of you and saying make a choice…you worship Me or Satan. He wants you for Him or against Him. You can’t have them both. You want life now or life eternity, the choice is yours. Trying to love two, ain’t easy to do…so chose one.
