Greed: An excessive or rapacious (predatory) desire, especially for wealth or possessions.  I always wanted my wealth in cash.  Now I know it’s not all about the “Benjamin’s” (money); It’s about the “Ripple Effects.”

The unexpected twist turns, and hurt on levels so deep they rival Mt. St. Helen’s eruption.  (A volcano in Washington State.)  Greed is a “Never-ending Story” of wants; a hunger of never being satisfied, exhausting ourselves through stupidity in order to gain more.

Taking chances, forsaking family, friends and God, all for the sake of something we will never get enough of.  Greed, one of the 7 “deadly sin,” and it creates insatiable desires, purposely designed to keep us hungry for more.  Now, when it comes to greed the “ole folks” want to know,  “If we had everything, where would we put it?”   A hint that more problems are waiting in the wings, preparing to help us create our own personal Hell.

Trapped because of objects.  Physical things that have and can suck us up into a life that has seduced us like powerful drugs, including making the  “Scrooges”  of today look like a bunch of girl scouts overnight.  All because that’s how fast the world is evolving with all this new Technology.  “I want one,” is coming out of more than the “mouths of babes.”

We are so greedy we are losing our capacity to work with each other.  Did you know, “Successful people are always looking for opportunities to help others.  Unsuccessful people are always asking, “What’s in it for me?”

Pertaining to that last sentence, I have uttered those greedy words on more than one occasion; you?

Recently a selfish act sent me to my knees in tears.  It had nothing to do with inheritances, for that was given.  So, there was no need for theft, there was no pushing to give up control.  Greed was the culprit of this selfish and cruel act; an act that zapped the Life out of someone I loved.

An act so greedy that the greedy one never realized they didn’t need to take anything, it was already given to them.

A very old woman called “Sweetie,” who was of sound mind until she made the decision to hand over control of her assets to a loved one.  Power of Attorney papers was filed on her behalf, and the family members had no prior knowledge of this 92-year-old mother’s decision to relinquish control over her life.  It was all about Love, and she thought it would make it easier for her family to care for her.

For the relative who gained control over her finances, it was all about Greed.  Not about a mother well up in age, far above the age most live.  Being of sound mind, but as far as mobility was concerned there was a problem with her legs.

After a few months of not being able to reach her, I made some decisions that paid off.  While complaining in a text message to one of her family members, I informed them that I was having too many problems trying to contact her and that I was concerned enough to seek professional answers about her well-being.

Well, needless to say, after that threat I received a call and a phone number.  Finally, when I was able to talk with this old woman, she told me the phone she was given is so complicated she had no idea of how to call out, and I was the only one who ever called her on it.

Now, there is nothing wrong with the facility where she is housed.  The problem is everything was given in hopes of a more stress-free and comfortable life, all because she felt as if the end was near.  Instead, nothing was to be shared with her to the point that when she asked for a few dollars to buy Christmas presents, she was told she didn’t need to spend money on anything, any more in life.

When she gave up control of her assets, this mother was abandoned in a nursing home with only the necessities.  What about the quality of one’s life is what I wanted to know.  I felt as if they threw her away.

A victim of  “The Ripple Effects,”  that was created by Greed, and it trickled straight down to the low down.  How low can we go?  To me, its seems as if some will go as far as it takes.  All the way to Hell in some cases.

To make matters worse, the family member with all the control is an old man long past his prime and is financially stable.  It was  “All About the Benjamin’s.”  For some, this story is mild when compared to some of the other horrors.  Kidnappings, rape, murder, all committed in the name of greed.

Nor cheats (swindlers and thieves), nor greedy graspers, nor drunkards, nor loudmouthed revelers and slanders, nor extortioners and robbers, will inherit or have any share in the Kingdom of God.  1st Corinthians 6:10  (AMP)

I often wonder if anyone ever notices most people are not in the lease shocked by greed, theft or deceit.  Are we losing touch with human emotions for physical satisfaction?   “It’s Something to Think About.”

Lord, we pray you take the bitter taste of greed out of our lives and the future of those to come.  In Jesus name, we pray.  Amen

    I believe everything posted was very reasonable. But, think
    about this, what if you added a little content?

    I mean, I don’t want to tell you how to run your blog, but suppose you added a headline that makes people want more?
    Cherry is a little vanilla. You might peek at
    Yahoo’s front page and watch how they create news headlines to get people
    to click. You might try adding a video or a pic or two to grab readers excited about what you’ve
    got to say. In my opinion, it could bring your posts a little livelier.

    I think what you wrote was very reasonable. However, what about this?
    what if you were to create a awesome post title?
    I ain’t suggesting your information is not solid., however what if
    you added something to maybe grab folk’s attention? I mean IT’S NOT ALWAYS ABOUT THE “
    BENJAMIN’S.” | Norvie L. Cherry is kinda boring.
    You should look at Yahoo’s home page and see how they write news
    headlines to get people to click. You might add a video
    or a related picture or two to get readers interested
    about what you’ve got to say. In my opinion,
    it could make your posts a little livelier.
