Ok, my good people, this is my first post after the welcome and for a start, let’s talk about greed.
I was just thinking about recent happenings and the word greed keeps popping up. I think that most of the problems around us today have something to do with greed. It can be anywhere, in the family, even in our beloved Naija for instance, the ‘national cake’ which should serve every individual citizen of this great nation is in the hands of a few. Greed! That explains why someone who has been in a political office for decades never wants to step down or someone who served in several key political positions in the 70s and 80s still comes back to public office in the 21st century? I don’t know the name you’d like to give it but I call it greed. So what is greed?
“.. the inordinate desire to possess wealth, goods, or objects of abstract value with the intention to keep it for on
e’s self, far beyond the dictates of basic survival and comfort. It is applied to a markedly high desire for and pursuit of wealth, status, and power” – Wikipedia
“An excessive desire to acquire or possess more than what one needs or deserves, especially with respect to material wealth”.
So anytime you have this excessive desire to acquire or possess more than what you need or deserve, watch it, greed may be creeping in.
That is my thought for today. So, tell us what you thing about greed or when do you thing someone is overdoing it?
Thanks for your time. Stay blessed!
