What greed can do
A man who did estate auctions told me he has seen a family divide over who would get an item once owned by a deceased parent. He said he used to be materialistic, but after being in this business he now felt he owned nothing he couldn’t part with.
When a man asked Jesus to settle an inheritance dispute, He refused. “Beware,” Jesus warned, “and be on your guard against every form of greed; for not even when one has an abundance does his life consist of his possessions” (Luke 12:13-15).
A better way to live
A sure cure for what some call “accumulitis” is contentment.
Things can never ultimately satisfy. Only Christ can.
