Measuring Life

Then Jesus said, “Beware! Guard against every kind of greed.  Life is not measured by how much you own.”
~ Luke 12:15 [NLT]

Greed is so difficult to identify in ourselves, yet so easy to call out in others.  This verse is most powerful when we apply it to our own selves.  When you feel an impulsive thought to take advantage of a situation for your gain, take a moment.  Think through your actions thoroughly and look at who loses with your gain.  Will your action bring you closer to God or further away from depending on Him?
