|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."|
In these verses, Jesus is addressing two brothers fighting over their inheritance. He gives them a strong warning about thinking that their possessions can give their life worth and ultimate value. Greed grips are hearts when we place material things (or anything) in the place of God and his ultimate approval and blessings in our life. Christmas should serve as the ultimate reminder that we have been given the very best God has to offer in the form of his Son!
