A Person Who Has The Greedy Desire To Secure More Wealth!

Rating: 4.6
For all the people who live in this world
Surrounded by the roaring extensive ocean,

A person who has the greedy desire
To secure more wealth saying that
He earns wealth in a justifiable
And proper ways with neutrality is a lie!

the truth expressed in this translation echoes the wisdom of religious traditions. as it happened, i read again this morning a literal translation of psalm 33, which says near the end, " Look, the Lord's eye is on those who fear Him, on those who yearn for His kindness to save their lives from death and in famine to keep them alive." a big, if not the main reason, for the greedy accumulation of wealth is to seek security—which doesn't exist apart from God. -gk
