Posted on Friday, January 4, 2013 in Emotional, Spiritual, Values

Some of the future prompts hope; after all, as a lifelong Chicago Cubs fan hope despite the past is burned into my DNA.

Some of the future prompts joy; like the joy felt by my friends Ben and Kristin Kindred who married Monday.

Contentment Leads To Generosity

Monday I began a series entitled A Treasure Chest Of Wisdom, including:

1. Don’t Hold Grudges
2. Take Care Of Your Health.
3. Compassion Makes Sense and Giving Is Better Than Taking
4. Greed Gains Momentum

5. Gratitude Leads To Contentment

Speed From Greed

Posted on Friday, August 12, 2011 in Emotional, Financial, How To, Spiritual, Values

We’ve had a garage sale at our house this week.

I’ve noticed two things that disturb me. 

First, far too many of the things in our house arrived in our house because of my greed. 

Second, I am not alone.  Many of our customers bought with greedy abandon.

For the LOVE of money is the root of all kinds of evil. And some people, craving money, have … pierced themselves with many sorrows…

so run

from all these evil things.” *

Greed is enticing.
Greed is deceitful.
Greed is deceptive.
Greed is a trap.
