Money, Self-importance and Greed:
Every life revolves around them
God wants to simplify our lives by giving us this simple revelation which is the key to understand our human existence. Our entire human existence revolved around three things, money; self-importance and greed. Everything that we do in life has one of those three elements in it; they are the core of our human existence. We live our entire human life to acquire money to give us value in life, importance in the world. Sometimes we are driven to get money at any cost, when our desire to acquire money defies reason, it is called greed. Greed is an intense desire that defies human reasoning. So what we see is that all three are interconnected and they correspond to something deeper at the core that makes us human. God does not want us to get caught in the web of life; He wants to shine His light on the dark side of our lives. This revelation is a gift from God, helping us cast out the darkness of this world. What I am trying to do is put into words what God meant when He said that every life revolves around these three things: Money, Self-importance and Greed. I notice that what they all have in common is that they respond to something deeper, in the core of what make us human. Because they are distorted, God wants to bring them to the light, allowing us to see the truth behind them.
Man natural disposition is to seek comfort; there is an inner Eden engrained in his psyche. In this world, he needs money to buy his comfort, to create the environment that makes him comfortable, lacking nothing. Money is the currency, the rate of exchange for goods and services, silver, gold, paper. In this world a man worth is measured by his wealth; his gifts and talents that can be translated into money or his inheritance of wealth that can be translated into money. How can you translate your gift into money, something that can be transferred into money? Money answered all things; it takes money for you to realize your dream. A man entire life revolves around getting money; if he is already born into it, his Net Worth becomes his obsession, how to maintain it. His Net Worth determined how he feels about his life, rather he is worth anything. All in all money and self importance are intertwined and parts of our earthy existence. Then greed, where is the element of greed enters into our lives. God said to us that all three are part of human existence, which means, to understand a personís life, you need to look at all three of these elements.
Greed is an integral part of human existence; it speaks of the needs that are driving us, our desires, our need to fulfill the needs that drive us. It is ok to desire things for without desire there is no human motivation. When a desire is no longer reasonable, it defies reason; it is called greed. I am sure that this explanation will not contradict other definitions of greed. God wants to simplify our lives; He gave us this simple revelation which is the key to understand our human existence. What I am trying to do is put in words what God meant when He said that every human life revolves around three things, money, self importance and greed. I explained money, the purpose of money in relation to our lives. I also gave an understanding of greed, how greed is an integral part of our lives. I showed how they all respond to something deeper at the core of our being, the elements that shape human existence. Because they are distorted, they become part of the darkness of this world, God wants to shed His light upon them, help people understand the real motivation behind our behaviors. Take self importance for example; it is the core of a human being, the driving force behind many of the terrors that we witness in the world. The need for recognition is a need that is driving us all to fulfill Godís will in our lives. God placed the seed of greatness inside of all of us
Self-importance is part of the core of a human being; it is need for recognition that manifested as self-importance. It is the need that is driving us all to fulfill the will of God in our lives. God placed the seed of greatness inside of all of us; that seed is destined for perfection. It needs to develop; the drive for recognition is the need in all of us to develop the seed of greatness that God placed inside of us. What distorted the truth is when the seed that God placed inside of us has stopped developing, yet the drive to fulfill Godís will continued; people often resorted to extreme acts just to be heard. Without the light of Christ to shine in the darkness of this world, we donít know why people behave the way they do.
