Greed - The Insatiable Monster of Marriage

Greed is the jealous hunger to obtain more than we need at any cost. A couple driven by greed will never know true peace or contentment.

Why is greed, the insatiable monster, never enough?

1. Greed is ultimately based on a lack of faith in God's provision.
2. Greed is driven by the lie that the things of the world can satisfy our hearts.

The Biblical cure for greed is Thanksgiving:

A life of continual thanksgiving to God is the remedy for greed. Thanksgiving focuses on all we have been given rather than all we lack. Thanksgiving acknowledges God Himself is more than enough. Thanksgiving sets us free to enjoy all we have without comparison or complaint.

(Jesus said to them) "Watch out! Be on guard against all kinds of greed; a man's life does not consist in the abundance of his possessions." Luke 12:15
