  • Greed is a selfish and excessive desire for more of something than is needed.
  • Greed is the relentless pursuit of self-interest, marked by an arrogant belief that both others and material possessions exist solely for one’s personal gain.
  • Greed is less about what you possess and more about what you obsess over (1 Timothy 6:9). 

1. Love for it (1 Timothy 6:10)

2. Trust in it (Mark 10:23-24)

3. Wrong way of obtaining it (Ephesians 4:28)

  • Giving looses us from the grip of greed. You cannot be grateful and greedy at the same time.
  • Giving feels like a loss, temporarily. 
  • Giving is a loan to God. God repays the loan (Proverbs 19:17).
