“Greed is a basic part of animal nature. Being against it is like being against breathing or eating.” Ben Stein, quoted in FoxBusiness.com
While Mr. Stein may be correct about it being a part of our animal nature, the Word of God calls us to rise above the animal nature to the image of God in which we were created. There we will discover that greed doesn’t have to be a guiding force in our life. --Jim L. Wilson and Rodger Russell
