Beware of covetousness

Greed is an evil that consumes society to such an extent that even people have taken the life of a blood brother because they cannot agree on how to distribute an inheritance and there is always someone who wants to keep most of it.

It seems that something similar happened in those days, because, on a certain occasion, a person from the crowd asked Jesus: “Teacher, tell my brother to divide the inheritance with me.” To which Jesus replies that who made Him judge and divider? He also added:

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

In this verse Jesus had just taught about the great value we have for our God, that value is so great that we can see that the Master gave himself for us on the cross of Calvary. This is a fact that motivates us every day to be able to be in the ways of God.

And that is why Jesus himself advises us to take care of greed, since our lives today are, and it is not for material goods, rather because our God has loved us and has had mercy.

O dear friend, we must separate ourselves and take care of all greed just as Jesus commands us, since this is an evil that can damage our lives for nothing, since one day we will leave this earth and everything material will stay here. God bless you.

Lazy, when will you wake up from your sleep?
