Blessings folk!

Ah, today is one of the bigger secular “holidays=holy-day” - “Black Friday”.

My understanding is that it was originally called “black friday” because this was the time of year that businesses “moved into the black”…began to make money after expenses, etc.

Who knows?

I do know this.

There is nothing wrong with seeking “a good deal”.
There is nothing wrong with making the best use of the resources granted by the Lord.

There is much wrong with greed.

The Lord tells us…

Luk 12:15
Then He said to them, “Beware, and be on your guard against every form of greed; for not even when one has an abundance does his life consist of his possessions.”

Rom 1:28-29a
And just as they did not see fit to acknowledge God any longer,
God gave them over to a depraved mind, to do those things which are not proper,

being filled with all unrighteousness, wickedness, greed, evil;…

Believers are warned…

Eph 5:3
But immorality or any impurity or greed must not even be named among you,
as is proper among saints;

 Col 3:5
Therefore consider the members of your earthly body as dead to immorality, impurity, passion, evil desire, and greed, which amounts to idolatry.

Be on guard against every form of greed
Let not greed be named among you
Consider your earthly body to be dead to greed

Examine yourself.
