They are in conflict with each other. Galatians 5:17
Our skin and spirit are in constant conflict. “The flesh desires what is contrary to the Spirit, and the Spirit what is contrary to the flesh” (Galatians 5:17). Those who are unsaved live by the desires of the flesh. Their objective is to use time and money to gather more earthly treasures. This lifestyle is dictated by what could serve them best. However, letting the sinful nature control the mind leads to death” (Romans 8:6a). In contrast, to live by the spirit means our thoughts and actions are dictated by Christ. The Spirit of God dwells inside of us and our objective is to use our time and money to enhance the Kingdom of God. This lifestyle leads to abundant life and peace (Romans 8:6b).
Are your habits with time and money showing evidence of life in Christ?
