TEXT: Luke 12:15

To be greedy means to have a selfish or excessive desire for more than is needed or deserved, especially of money, wealth, food, or other possessions. It’s a vice not a virtue. Examine yourself, what’s your attitude where they are sharing things free? do you desire to have more than needed or deserved? where others are yet to have.

1. Satan fellowship in the house of the greedy Pro 15:27a (He that is greedy of gain troubleth his own house)
2. The greedy is treading the path of destruction Pro 1:19 (So are the ways of every one that is greedy of gain; which taketh away the life of the owners thereof.)
3. It’s a sin that automatically adds other sin like *lying* example: Gehazi lie to Elisha that he didn’t go anywhere, but he had gone after Naman to get the gift his master rejected 2Kings 5:25

1. Be contented with what you have 1Tim 6:6
2. Get to know Jesus more (Jesus said ……. beware of covetousness: for a man’s life consist not in the abundance of the things which he possess. Luke 12:15)
3. Don’t compare yourself with others. 2Cor 10:12
4. God knows you before you were formed and He has a plan to prosper you 3John 2

In conclusion, greediness leads to destruction, so don’t be greedy but be contented.

Prayer points
Father, destroy every spirit of greed in me, and give me the grace to be contented in Jesus name. Amen
