Bible Verses About Greed
Greed is the reason for drug dealings , stealing, robbing, lying, fraud, and other sinful businesses such as the porn industry, and more. Greed is the main reason why there are many false teachers in Christianity. They will rob people of the truth so they can have more money in the collection plate. The greedy are very selfish and rarely and barely do they make sacrifices for the poor. They seek friendship with people only because it benefits them.
M oney and greed are talked about throughout the entire Bible. In fact, Jesus talked about this issue more than any other, except for the Kingdom of God. As humans, we start life as newborns in the state of rebellion. We are born into sin and it only until Christ changes us that we become new. Greed cannot be a part your life if you are a believer. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come. This is pretty straightforward.
Do nothing from selfishness or empty conceit, but with humility of mind regard one another as more important than yourselves; do not merely look out for your own personal interests, but also for the interests of others. For where jealousy and selfish ambition exist, there is disorder and every evil thing. For those who are according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who are according to the Spirit, the things of the Spirit. He who separates himself seeks his own desire, He quarrels against all sound wisdom. Among them we too all formerly lived in the lusts of our flesh, indulging the desires of the flesh and of the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, even as the rest. But realize this, that in the last days difficult times will come.
