The human greed is a very powerful thing. When our creator made us he made us with options and we form the greed from the pain of others. Everyone in some point of life is greedy; whether its money, power, or sex. Most of people greed controls their lives. To not be greedy with something is one of the hardest things to do it life. There is a difference between good greed and bad greed. We generalize the word with being something bad but some greed is actually acceptable.
They say money is the rot of all evil but when you think about it, money is just a green paper with a dead president on the face of it. If it wasn’t money it would be something else. So money is just an excuse for the actually greedy person. The holder of money is the root of evil. I honestly believe that a billionaire could be a decent person it’s just what he decide to do. To lust money is one of the most common greed and most people will die for this greed.
It seems now sex controls most of everyone lives. Sex seems so common to have that if you’re not involved in the act with someone you’re missing out. While sex is good sex is not one the most important thing in life. Love is the most important thing in life. I believe sex is actually a distracted from what you really think is important. When you get greedy with sex you don’t just hurt yourself but you hurt others around you. This greed can actually kill you thanks to AIDS and HIV.
Power and money actually goes together. Power doesn’t necessarily mean you want money but it’s just a like a similar concept. Power in general means you like to be in control of things. Power is having the fear of others as your elements. With power you can rise fast and fall faster. To search for power is like searching for danger. Those who acquire power in a forceful way will fall from power in a forceful way. With power you get what you give. Power is a dangerous greed.
You may be thinking to yourself there isn’t any such thing as good greed, but you’re wrong. Good greed pertains to goals, ambitions, and loving yourself. While these could turn wrong but the agenda are these are good. To have goals and ambition and to keep the drive you are attempting to set up your life so you could succeed. Loving yourself, I believe everyone should have this greed (not conceitedness), but you know what they say; how you going love anyone else if you can’t love yourself.
Greed is becoming too common with in today society. “We” kill, rob, and lust just for a taste at something better. Why can’t we be contain with what is given to us? Why do we lust for more? Are we not truly blessed if we just have basic things? Of course we are, we just like to have more than what we need.
