Greed affects all of us. It speaks from our heart, making four common claims. Jesus challenges greed in a memorable parable about a man who wants a bigger, newer, better barn. It doesn't end well for him. Fortunately, greed has an antidote: Generosity.

Pleasure: the word speaks for itself. God created us as pleasure-seeking creatures. Unfortunately, we have not learned how to align discipleship with desire. We keep following Jesus as a matter of intellect and maintain low-grade guilt for enjoying much of the world. Pleasure for its own sake, says Q in Ecclesiastes, is an idol and dead end. Pleasure as a pointer to God, however, is a guiltless good. So desire God and enjoy life.
