Title

Greed – God’s Children Are Not Greedy

Message in the picture

“Greed – You are God’s people, so don’t let it be said that any of you are greedy. Being greedy is just another way of worshiping idols.” from Ephesians 5:3 & 5

Scripture for the day

Romans 1:28-32 New Living Translation (NLT) Since they thought it foolish to acknowledge God, he abandoned them to their foolish thinking and let them do things that should never be done. 29 Their lives became full of every kind of wickedness, sin, greed, hate, envy, murder, quarreling, deception, malicious behavior, and gossip. 30 They are backstabbers, haters of God, insolent, proud, and boastful. They invent new ways of sinning, and they disobey their parents. 31 They refuse to understand, break their promises, are heartless, and have no mercy. 32 They know God’s justice requires that those who do these things deserve to die, yet they do them anyway. Worse yet, they encourage others to do them, too.

Thought for the day

1 Corinthians 6:9-10 The Voice (VOICE) “Do you need reminding that the unjust have no share in the blessings of the kingdom of God? Do not be misled. A lot of people stand to inherit nothing of God’s coming kingdom, including those whose lives are defined by sexual immorality, idolatry, adultery, sexual deviancy, theft, greed, drunkenness, slander, and swindling.” Colossians 3:5 GOD’S WORD Translation (GW) “Therefore, put to death whatever is worldly in you: your sexual sin, perversion, passion, lust, and greed (which is the same thing as worshiping wealth).” Yes my friends greed, covetousness and many things that people do are sinful; “Be free from the love of money, content with such things as you have, for he has said, “I will in no way leave you, neither will I in any way forsake you.” Be blessed in Jesus name, Tim.
