Greed creates disagreements. Greed causes drama and fighting but trusting the Lord leads to prosperity. The Pharisees had greedy hearts. Only sorrow awaits the teachers of religious law and Pharisees. Hypocrites are so careful to clean the outside of the cup and the dish, but inside they are filthy and full of greed and self-indulgence. Christians should avoid being greedy. There should be no sexual immorality, impurity, or greed among us. Such sins have no place among God's people. The bible tells us that people full of greed will not enter heaven. God assures us that no immoral, impure, or greedy person will inherit his kingdom. A greedy person is an idolater, worshiping the things of this world. Leaders of the church must not be greedy. An elder must live a blameless life. He must not be arrogant or quick-tempered; he must not be a heavy drinker, violent, or dishonest with money.
