Tired of contentment? Try some greed...

"God has so hung the greedy to their bellies that they are never satisfied or happy with their greedily gained goods. Sir Greed is such a jolly guest that he does not let anyone rest. He seeks, pushes and hunts without stopping, so that he cannot enjoy his precious property for a single hour. Thus Solomon the preacher wonders "Is it not a sore affliction that God gives man wealth..." ~Martin Luther

Greed is the symptom of our pride and sinful nature. We want the trappings of wealth, and we will easily allow it to turn our attention from to God to self, and the pleasure of self that wealth makes so easy to accomplish.
