What does the modern church do? Seek after earthly things - money, food, clothing and jobs, all under the pretext of the command that " if any would not work, neither should he eat" (2 Thessalonians 3:10). The typical modern Christian argues, "but I need to care for the (earthly, temporal) needs of my family". Such is the typical excuse for its is an easy excuse to give. No wonder the world thinks that the modern church is hypocritical in supporting capitalism, thinking the capitalism is good for keeping families intact, but yet claiming to follow Jesus who said that " If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me (Matthew 16:24), and "If any man come to me, and hate not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple" (Luke 14:26).
If you do not seek after God first and love God as your first love, you will not truly love your family. If you do not seek after God first, you do not truly seek after God wholeheartedly. In the case of the Christian, where he does not seek God first, he is caught up with idolatry, and therefore under the spirit of mammon.
