Davidisms - There's A Huge Difference Between Greeds and Needs

Do you want it, or do you need it? Your answer to this question clarifies whether it’s a greed or a need. Greed is a want. One that often captures our hearts. Causing us to become fixated on something. Believing a thing will satisfy an emptiness in our hearts. Thinking we must have it for life to be meaningful. But greeds fulfill nothing. And they never will. Conversely, needs are what we require to live: food, air, water, community. And most importantly, God himself. And his grace. In his Word, God promises to meet our every need “according to the riches in Christ Jesus” (Phil. 4:19). When God becomes the master passion of our lives, our greeds begin melting away in unimportance. Because Jesus has met the deepest longings of our heart (Psalm 37:4). Paul said that godliness with contentment is great gain (1 Tim. 6:6). He had learned the difference between greeds and needs. It’s a lesson we all need to learn as well.
