This Christmas... Give Jesus

Bad News (Greed)...  Good News (Jesus)

Bad News... Greed is an Insatiable Monster/Good News...  Being Thankful to Jesus is the Answer

Bad News:  Greed is the jealous hunger to obtain more than we need at any cost.

Good News:  The Biblical cure for greed is a life of continual thanksgiving to God.

Bad News:  Greed will never allow you to know true peace or contentment.

Good News:  Jesus tells us to focus on all we have been given rather than all we lack.

Bad News:  Enough is never enough when greed infects you.  Greed is ultimately based on a lack of faith in God's provision.

Good News   Jesus says He is more than enough, so acknowledge and trust that.

Bad News:   Greed is driven by the lie that the things of the world can satisfy our hearts.

Good News   Thanksgiving to Jesus sets us free to enjoy all we have without comparison or complaint.

 This Christmas...  Give Jesus
(Jesus said to them) "Watch out! Be on guard against all kinds of greed; a man's life does not consist in the abundance of his possessions." Luke 12:15
