Growing together in the Spirit of Jesus Christ...

"Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another - and all the more as you see the Day approaching." - Hebrews 10:25 NIV

need and greed

What a sorry state we get ourselves into
when we build an idol to our
greedy secular desires.

Haven’t we learned anything?
Do we still not understand what happens
when we take our eyes off of our God ?

“The greed of gain has no time or limit to its capaciousness.
Its one object is to produce and consume.
It has pity neither for beautiful nature
nor for living human beings.
It is ruthlessly ready without a moment's hesitation
to crush beauty and life out of them,
molding them into money.”
- Rabindranath Tagore

“Earth provides enough to satisfy every man's need,
but not every man's greed”
- Mahatma Gandhi

“… the greed is the unraveling.
…and it undoes all the joy that could be.”
- Joni Mitchell
