Sinful Roots In The Heart

GREED

Greed, or covetousness, comes from two different Greek words: one meaning “more,” and the other “to have.”  Greed is the craving to have more; it is synonymous with evil desire and lust. It is a strong craving to increase fleshly pleasures or to satisfy ourselves with earthly goods rather than eternal treasures.  Covetousness leads to other sins, including envy and guile. Contrary  to greed are contentment and thankfulness, which are satisfied in God alone. 

GREED in the heart says things such as: "I want more." "I am not content with what I have." "Having more will satisfy."
