Now it’s your turn

  

Are you Greedy?

   

Greedy
intense and selfish desire for something, esp. wealth, power, or food

Here’s what the Bible says about greedy

Why is everyone hungry for more?
“More, more,” they say.
“More, more.”
Psalm 4:6

The world of the generous gets larger and larger;
the world of the stingy gets small and smaller.
Proverbs 11:24

A greedy and grasping person destroys community;
those who refuse to exploit live and let live.
Proverbs 15:27

19 Don’t hoard treasure down here where it gets
eaten by moths and
corroded by rust or
—worse!
stolen by burglars.
20 Stockpile treasure in heaven,
where it’s safe from moth
and rust
and burglars.
21 It’s obvious, isn’t it?
The place where your treasure is,
is the place you will most want to be,
and end up being.
Matthew 6:19-21

Give away your life;
you’ll find life given back,
but not merely given back
—given back with bonus and blessing.
Giving,
not getting,
is the way.
Generosity begets generosity.
Luke 6:38

Your eye is a lamp,
lighting up your whole body.
If you live wide-eyed in wonder and belief,
your body fills up with light.
If you live squinty-eyed in greed and distrust,
your body is a dank cellar.
Luke 11:34

Speaking to the people, he went on,
Take care!
Protect yourself against the least bit of greed.
Life is not defined by what you have,
even when you have a lot.
Luke 12:15

Your greedy luxuries are a cancer in your gut,
destroying your life from within.
You thought you were piling up wealth.
What you’ve piled up is judgment.
James 5:3
