Kinh thánh nói gì về lòng tham?


Song trong các ngươi không như vậy; trái lại hễ ai muốn làm lớn trong các ngươi, thì sẽ làm đầy tớ;
Mác 10:43
Greed is a strong and selfish desire to have more of something, most often money or power. There are many warnings in the Bible about giving in to greed and longing for riches. Jesus warned, “Watch out! Be on your guard against all kinds of greed; a man’s life does not consist in the abundance of his possessions” (Luke 12:15). “Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal… You cannot serve both God and money” (Matthew 6:19, 24b). Did Jesus pursue the acquisition of money? No. On the contrary, He became poor for our sake (2 Corinthians 8:9) and had “no place to lay his head” (Matthew 8:20). Neither did Jesus pursue power. Rather, He instructed, "Whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant, and whoever wants to be first must be slave of all. For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many" (Mark 10:43–45).
Chớ tham tiền; hãy lấy điều mình có làm đủ rồi, vì chính Đức Chúa Trời có phán rằng: Ta sẽ chẳng lìa ngươi đâu, chẳng bỏ ngươi đâu.
Hê-bơ-rơ 13:5
Greed and a desire for riches are traps that bring ruin and destruction. “The love of money is a root of all kinds of evil,” and Christians are warned, “Do not put your trust in wealth” (see 1 Timothy 6:9-10, 17-18). Covetousness, or having an excessive or greedy desire for more, is idolatry. Ephesians 5:5 says, “For of this you can be sure: No immoral, impure or greedy person – such a man is an idolater – has any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God.” The principle to remember is contained in Hebrews 13:5: “Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said, ‘Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.’”
Nầy, có một người đến hỏi Ngài rằng: Thưa thầy, tôi phải làm việc lành chi cho được sự sống đời đời?
Ma-thi-ơ 19:16
It is the love of money, and not money itself, that is the problem. The love of money is a sin because it gets in the way of worshiping God. Jesus said it was very hard for rich people to enter the Kingdom of God. When the rich young ruler asked Jesus what he should do to inherit eternal life, Jesus told him to sell all his possessions and give the money to the poor. “When the young man heard this, he went away sad, because he had great wealth” (see Matthew 19:16-22). By instructing him to give up his money, Jesus pointed out the young man’s main problem: greed or a love of money. The man could not follow Christ because he was following money. His love of this world interfered with his love for God.
Greed refuses to be satisfied. More often than not, the more we get, the more we want. Material possessions will not protect us—in this life or eternally. Jesus’ parable of the rich fool in Luke 12:13–21 illustrates this point well. Again, money or wealth is not a problem. The problem is our attitude toward it. When we place our confidence in wealth or are consumed by an insatiable desire for more, we are failing to give God the glory and worship He deserves. We are to serve God, not waste our time trying to become rich (Proverbs 23:4). Our heart’s desire should be to store up riches in heaven and not worry about what we will eat or drink or wear. “But seek first [God’s] kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well” (see Matthew 6:25-34).

Mác 10:43 - Song trong các ngươi không như vậy; trái lại hễ ai muốn làm lớn trong các ngươi, thì sẽ làm đầy tớ;
Hê-bơ-rơ 13:5 - Chớ tham tiền; hãy lấy điều mình có làm đủ rồi, vì chính Đức Chúa Trời có phán rằng: Ta sẽ chẳng lìa ngươi đâu, chẳng bỏ ngươi đâu.
Ma-thi-ơ 19:16 - Nầy, có một người đến hỏi Ngài rằng: Thưa thầy, tôi phải làm việc lành chi cho được sự sống đời đời?
Ma-thi-ơ 6:25 - Vậy nên ta phán cùng các ngươi rằng: đừng vì sự sống mình mà lo đồ ăn uống; cũng đừng vì thân thể mình mà lo đồ mặc. Sự sống há chẳng quí trọng hơn đồ ăn sao, thân thể há chẳng quí trọng hơn quần áo sao?
