And He said them, “Beware, and 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
John D. Rockefeller was once asked, “How much money does it take to satisfy somebody?” He famously answered, “Just a little more.” That seems to be true, doesn’t it? No one is immune to greed. A person can have much and be greedy, or a person can have little and be greedy.
Jesus says to beware of all forms of greed, because a person is not defined by his possessions or position in life. Do you struggle with the love of money? Then let me offer you the cure: Giving! That’s right. If you are struggling with greed, look for opportunities to be generous and give. PROVERBS 11:25 reminds us, “The generous soul will be made rich.”
Let me assure you, the true riches of God are far greater and much deeper than a dollar mark! They will make a difference for eternity!
