“Have you ever thought of yourself as being greedy? Most people connect greed with other people, never with themselves.

Greed seeps into many areas of man’s life. Sometimes we say it is ego rather than to use the word ‘greed’. Ego is self-love. Greed is wanting more than one’s share. It is extreme or excessive desire for someone’s attention, company, intimacy, or personal gain.

Possessiveness, lust, gluttony, are no strangers to greed. Dominance is greed. Jealousy has greed in it. Slander can have greed in it. Stealing has greed. Adultery has greed.

These are only a few areas of life in which greed touches many lives, and yet people never connect greed with themselves.”
