The cure for greed
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!
