Proverbs 1: 18-19 – Greed

Hi all,

Synonyms of Greed :

greediness – avidity – avarice – cupidity – rapacity
Meaning of Greed:
Intense and selfish desire for something, esp. wealth, power, or food

It’s so easy to fall into greed, as it doesn’t come in the form of selfishness.  Sometimes we feel like we are in a pit and we need money in order to get out, or we were victims of rejection when we were children, it can all lead to some kind of greed in our lives.  If you were rejected, you feel the need to gain power and wealth in order to prove to others and ultimately yourself that you’re not worthless.  This can end up being greedy, as you sacrifice the wonderful things in life like family, friends, religion and much more.

The scripture below (Proverbs 1:18-19)  only talks to us about greed for money, but I thought I would go into it a bit deeper as there are lots of people suffering from it.  The Best to do is to give it to God.  I know it seems as if that’s the only thing people say when you are in trouble.  But honestly it’s the best way to go.  It’s not easy, as satan knows that’s the only way you can get free of him, so he keeps on bugging you with things to try to get you off the road of light again.  Stand strong and continuously stay in prayer —> (Ephesians 6:18)

Proverbs 1: 18-19 (NLT)

18 But these people set an ambush for themselves;
they are trying to get themselves killed.
19 Such is the fate of all who are greedy for money;
it robs them of life.

This is a prayer you can say everything you are being bugged by satan:


Lord, please set me free from these attacks.  I’m your child and I believe that you have set me free!

Please put your angels, holy spirit and the armor of God around me so that I can survive in this world I live in.

Give me your Godly Wisdom and knowledge so that I can make the right decisions and fulfill your Will in this world.



Be blessed family! Always pray for each other. Please share this!
