Reader: Greed is bringing this country down

Greed is one of the big sins committed today, but the least spoken about.

There was a day when everyone pitched in to help when someone was in need with no thought of being repaid.

Nowadays, if there is no money in it, people won’t help. All they want to do is accrue more and more money.

I agree you need a certain amount to adequately provide food, clothing and shelter for yourself and your family. But after that is attained, you should give of your time and money to the needy.

Too much wealth and greed will compromise your salvation.

Just remember, all your earthly possessions and material wealth will some day come to an end. Only your heavenly treasures will remain.

If we all would put the sin of greed “out of business,” this would become a wonderful country to live in.

- Al Scheller, Elizabethtown
