Jesus gives us two really strong commands today: 1) you cannot serve both God and Mammon, and 2) seek first the kingdom. 

When we have other gods that we serve, we end up with divided hearts. When we have divided hearts we are not seeking first His Kingdom. Therefore we are deeply attached to something, and that something is keeping us from Christ. 

As we begin Lent let us not seek to "give up" those arbitrary thing like chocolate or sweets, but let's give up those attachments. Ask Jesus to reveal what it is we're attached too so that we may detach and live for Jesus alone.
