Laubach: God hates greed

Thursday, July 9, 2015
    [Jesus:] “... He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous.”
    —Matthew 5:45 (NIV)
    It is that spirit of greed which Jesus said God hated more than any other. It is so diametrically opposite to the spirit of God. For God forever lavishes His gifts upon the good and bad alike, and finds all His joy in endless giving.
    ... Frank C. Laubach (1884-1970), from a letter, October 7, 1930, Man of Prayer: Selected Writings of a World Missionary, Laubach Literacy International, 1990, p. 45 (see the book)
    See also Matt. 5:45; Ps. 112:9; Matt. 7:11; Luke 11:13; 1 Tim. 6:10; Jas. 1:17
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, replace the greed in my heart with thanksgiving.
