Luke 12:15 ” Then He said to them, ‘Watch out! Be on your guard against all kinds of greed; a man’s life does not consist in the abundance of his possessions.’ “

This verse goes totally against the consumer-driven, materialistic culture we live in today.  We’re told we deserve to treat ourselves to “things”…and that the more the better.  And so we amass possessions to feed the ever growing selfish needs and desires we have.  But collecting and accumulating “things” will never fill the void inside us that only a relationship with Jesus Christ can fill.  For in Job 20:20 it tells us that we can’t be saved by our treasures.
