10th Commandment; last doesn't mean least.

We linked the Tenth Commandment with the Seventh. Today we will attach it very strongly with the First and Second Commandments.

No one can serve two masters. Either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money. Matthew 6:24

Money is the other god that is before the God of the First Command; “You shall have no other gods before me.”

Put to death, therefore, whatever belongs to your earthly nature: sexual immorality, impurity, lust, evil desires and greed, which is idolatry. Colossians 3:5

Greed is idolatry.

For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil. Some people, eager for money, have wandered from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs.
1 Timothy 6:10
