“Then Jesus said to his disciples: “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat; or about your body, what you will wear. For life is more than food, and the body more than clothes” – Luke 12:22-23
Greed is a result of lack of trust in God to take care of things and the fear of the unknown. The belief that God cannot do for them more than they can do for themselves leads many to strive to gather up wealth that they consume on themselves.
These kind of people are usually limited by certain mindsets such as, poverty, the fear of being in continuous lack; scarcity, the belief that what they have is not enough to go around, no matter how much it is; wanting to be ahead at the expense of others by doing anything to get what they want; insatiable appetite, a sense of value that depends on acquired material wealth instead of God; and materialism, wanting the best of everything just for yourself.
Greed will always rear its head but your ability to hold on to God’s covenant promises will help you overcome.
Declaration: I declare I am not overcome by greed, I live on covenant promises and I operate in the blessed life. Amen.
