All Kinds of Greed – Luke 12:15

Welcome to Scriptures for Life with TorahFamily.org. Taking time to focus on the Father’s way.

Luke 12:15
Then he said to them, “Watch out! Be on your guard against all kinds of greed; a man’s life does not consist in the abundance of his possessions.”

Greed is a very deceiving force. It gets us to think that we’ll be happy if we get that one more thing. Then we get it and what? It shows us something else that we “need” and that we’d be happier if we had it. Greed never stops showing us that “one more thing.”

Our text has Yeshua saying this after a man came to him asking Yeshua to be an arbiter between him and his brother. Yeshua told the man “Who appointed me a judge or an arbiter between you?”

And it’s then that Yeshua said “Watch out! Be on your guard against all kinds of greed; a man’s life does not consist in the abundance of his possessions.”

Greed gets us literally pursuing “things”. When we should actually be pursuing YHWH. What are you pursuing today? Is it through greed or love? Do you seek more things or do you seek more of YHWH?

Let this be a focus in your time of meditation throughout the day. Until next time, Shalom.
