mistake: being greedy

over the years, i have always been greedy in almost all aspects of my life: money, time, sleep, materialistic things, my time, and so much more; i have always wanted to hold onto things – just in case i need the item in the future as opposed to giving the item away to someone who truly needs it at the time; in the end and looking back, i can clearly see that this has cost me friends, closeness, relationships, promotions, selflessness, empathy for others, and so much more; if i think of this on a different level – this is not how Jesus lived; He gave us everything regardless of what He had (or did not have); i can’t change overnight, but if i continue to keep this perspective on things, maybe i will be able to be more giving and not so greedy; Jesus gave me ALL; i should give HIM all!
