Greed [greed] noun
excessive or rapacious desire,
especially for wealth or possessions.
Why Kate Sincerely thinks Greed’s considered a deadly sin:
In my original 7 Deadly Sins post I said that our wants are insatiable. I know I can’t go to Staples without looking at the stationery and I’m sure everyone has a place or thing just like that. Whether it’s as small as a DVD in the $5 bin at WalMart or as extravagant as wanting an extra 0 on every paycheck, everyone is guilty of being greedy despite what they’ve already been given. And I mean EVERYONE.
Some of my recent sins:
First of all, I did get a package of stationery the last time I was at Staples. Other things I acquired this summer include a date stamp, materials to make my own postcards, and Les Miserables on blu-ray.
Something else I’ve been acquiring this summer: a postcard from every state to send to my postcard pen pal in Ireland. You may be thinking that that’s the opposite of being greedy, but I have asked family, pen pals, strangers, and even my ex’s sister for help in finding all 50. Only a handful more to go!
I became obsessed with the show Whodunnit recently. I suppose it was greedy of me to not want to wait between episodes to find out what happened next. I also made myself a Twitter account mainly so I could see all The Killer’s tweets because I couldn’t get enough of the “#evillaugher” on Monday mornings. Here’s the kicker… despite me never having an interest in tweeting before, I can’t help but wish I had more followers. (*wink wink* *nudge nudge*)
I could list more examples, but to that I say, “don’t be greedy!” I shall leave you with a picture of all the postcards that I have waiting to be sent off to pen pals or postcrossers, haha:
And now you can tell me not to be greedy, haha.
Sincerely, Kate ~!~
