Day 104 - Sunday 13th April

GREED - is the desire for material wealth or gain, ignoring the realm of the spiritual. It is also called Avarice or Covetousness.
This week’s prompts have really made me think. I didn’t realise there was a difference between gluttony and greed, but if greed is more based around materialistic desires then I guess I am guilty of this sin too. So we have had 6 of the 7 deadly sins so far and I have been guilty of 5 of them. Is this bad or just a sign of modern day life?
I do like to have nice things around me and I feel that as we work hard, why can’t we have the nice things in life? I guess our new car is a good example of this. James has always been into his
cars whereas to me a car was just a mode of transport. However over the last few years having had decent cars, when we came to buy this one, it seemed important to have a flash car.
This car has all the toys on it and it is lovely, but if I am totally honest, it is too big for me and I do find it difficult to park as it is so big. Was I greedy in agreeing to buy this car? Should I have been firmer and insisted on a smaller car that I felt more comfortable driving? Or has the “need” for this car overridden my sensibilities?
Very probably!!!
