Project Devo – Day 27

Gordon Gekko, the star character of the 80’s film Wall Street, famously said, “greed, for lack of a better word, is good. Greed is right, greed works.” In an environment of this world, an environment of gratification and self adulation, an environment that is absent of God’s love, this appears to make sense. But God calls us to be disciplined when tempted, and to place our devotion in Him and not in the material possessions or fleeting experiences of this world.

Discipline

“So put to death the sinful, earthly things lurking within you. Have nothing to do with sexual immorality, impurity, lust, and evil desires. Don’t be greedy, for a greedy person is an idolater, worshiping the things of this world.” Colossians 3:5 NLT
