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."
Two thoughts are behind the word. First is to guard what you already have or else someone take if from you, and the second is the realization that an enemy is around so protection is needed. The enemy is materialism. It is time to wake up and realize that what counts in life can not be bought or acquired.We need to learn that more is not always better and that greed is a contagious virus that destroys what really counts. So beware! don't always be wishing for what you don't have.
