Greed leads to a lonely place. I know because for a short time in my life, I lived there.
And it’s a cruel master when you become its slave. Nothing is ever enough. Nothing can satisfy. Worse yet, it deceives us into thinking we will run out of the very thing that often keeps us locked in its grasp.
The Bible warns us about greed repeatedly. Luke 12:15 tells us, “Then he said, ‘Beware! Guard against every kind of greed. Life is not measured by how much you own.’”
When does the Bible ever tell us to beware of something without good cause?
