Brothers, it is good to remember that our God is our helper, everything we possess comes from Him, since everything that comes from Him is good, that is why we should not have greed, and the Bible itself warns us about this trap.
How can we guard against greed? Protecting our hearts and pray unceasingly to the Lord to take care of every step we take, that nothing can harm our path to the Father.
Due to the times we are living in, these cases occur very often, greed has occupied a very special place in many people, and this is the advice that the Word of God gives us:
And he said unto them, Take heed, and beware of covetousness: for a man’s life consisteth not in the abundance of the things which he possesseth.
Luke 12:15 (KJV)
These words of Jesus come after a man asked the Master to speak with his brother to divide the inheritance, to which Jesus replied that He was not put to distribute the inheritance.
Brothers, greed is so bad that families have been divided and destroyed by a division of goods and other issues related to money and wealth. Many, after obtaining what they wanted, seeing what they lost only to obtain material benefits, there is when they learn the words of Jesus that we saw previously: “the life of man does not consist of the abundance of the goods that he possesses.”
We must remember that our lives depend on the One who gave His life for our salvation. Friend, if you are putting your goods as a priority, or you think that your life depends on that, we advise you to change because our lives depend on our God, we are from dust and we will return to dust.
