Greed

Description

It’s only when we discern the true needs in our lives, based on God’s principles and values, that we are able to control greed.

“Do not let immorality or any impurity or greed even be named among you, as is proper among saints.” (Ephesians 5:3)

Greed means “I want more. I want the best. I’ll not be satisfied with anything less.” Greed can separate families and friendships, and it breeds dishonesty and guilt. Greed is evident in our society in everything from bigger homes to flashier cars to obsession over hoarding money.

Many Christians are going to be ashamed to face the Lord and explain why they hoarded money while others went hungry.

Once commitment has been made to a disciplined lifestyle, regardless of the abundance of income, the danger of greed and its byproducts is significantly reduced.

It’s only when we discern the true needs in our lives, based on God’s principles and values, that we can control greed.

Jesus warned us, “Be on your guard against every form of greed; for not even when one has an abundance does his life consist of his possessions” (Luke 12:15).
