Always Wanting More

Ezekiel 45:7, “And to the prince shall belong the land on both sides of the holy district and the property of the city…” ESV

History have been different if all rulers were content with the amount of their land. (King Ahab had Naboth killed so he could take his vineyard, 1 Kings 21:1-19.)

Politicians today give themselves raises and pay for it by raising taxes. They never have enough. Their engorged salaries continue even after their term in office expires.

Greed is not limited to politicians. We are always hoping for a larger salary to buy a larger house. It never ends.
