Greed takes in misery. Faith receives in joy. – Largely Catechized Life #38

Greed is everywhere in the world, and it causes a lot of pain. Greedy hearts break the 7thcommandment, not just in stealing, but in working against our neighbor’s wellbeing. The problem is, when more stuff becomes your god, it never saves, and never even brings true enjoyment. These things come from God. He even gives us earthly gifts to enjoy and use in service to our neighbor. When you steal from others, you’ll never have enough, but if your eyes are on the Lord, everything you receive from Him is plenty.
