Scripture: Proverbs 28:25 The greedy stir up conflict, but those who trust in the LORD will prosper. (NIV)
Nugget: Greed, it’s a characteristic that can bring out a side of people that we couldn’t imagine. Most times, it does result in conflict & strife. Greed can destroy relationships & result in issues we’d least expect.
Greed shouldn’t be the thing that drives us to wanting more or better; we should seek God & trust Him in all that He has in store for us. What one receives from God is lasting; anything else is fleeting.
If greed is a driving force for you, this should be re-examined. Allow God to guide you in all things---trust Him.
Quote: “Greed is a bottomless pit which exhausts the person in an endless effort to satisfy the need without ever reaching satisfaction.” -Erich Fromm
