GREED
Dag Heward-Mills
READ: 2 Kings 5:20-27
He that loveth silver shall not be satisfied with silver...
Ecclesiastes 5:10
A greedy person will often stretch out his hands to take something that does not belong to him. He is never satisfied with what he has.
Look at what happened to Gehazi, the servant of Elisha the Prophet. Due to his greed, Gehazi ended up with leprosy when Elisha cursed him and his seed forever, (2 Kings 5:27).
Perhaps he was next in line to become the most anointed man of God after Elisha. Greed destroyed his ministry and his entire life. The spirit of greed can cause you to waste your life away.
Some people look with greed at the things their superiors in business or ministry have. They look with greedy eyes at the cars and houses which their bosses have! Other people's greed goes even further than that. They do not only want what you have, but actually want to be you!
If you work with somebody, be content. Don't be greedy! You won't get to the top in a day. The only job that starts from the top is grave digging! My experience tells me that it is not easy to prosper in this life. It is a long road to the prosperity we all hope for. Impatience and greed will only destroy you.
The Bible says, "Beware of covetousness" (Luke 12:15). The prodigal boy was not satisfied with all his blessings, and so he stretched out his hand in the spirit of greed to take what was not yet his (Luke 15:12). Do you have the spirit of greed? Please, deliver yourself !
