Greed kills

Death and despair 

The loss of a loved one can never be replaced. Sometimes the hurt can never be healed. However, we must find a place where we can move on and stop the worry.

My story

My mom passed away in 2006.  This year will be 11 years that she has passed and there is still hurt, animosity, pain, and loss within our family.  I, unfortunately, am the one who’s suffering the most torment from people who is supposed to love me.  It’s weird how death can turn an otherwise healthy family upside down.

We won’t always leave this world with the same people we entered with. Things change – – People change — Choices are made.


It’s so sad to see families break up when people pass away,.  

Greed Kills

Family members want money, possessions, or anything they can from that person who once lived here on Earth. 

What people seem not to realize is that when people are here on Earth they do for you while they’re here, if that’s what they choose to do.  They  are not obligated to leave you anything.

However,  when they’re gone they’re gone.  Money nor possessions will bring them back.

I have seen so many families torn apart and remain in deep despair for  years.  Breaking up,  falling out, arguing, pointing fingers, accusations, and fighting –all For the Love of Money. 

The facts

This is what the Bible tells you about greed and money     Proverbs 1:19 So are the ways of everyone who is greedy for gain. … Be on your guard against all kinds of greed; a man’s life does not consist in the abundance of his possessions.” 1 Corinthians 6:10 nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God.

Greed Kills families.  Greed will topple down homes and buildings. 

Why the fight?

What is it all for? why do we want more from people who aren’t here ?why do we continue to want their possessions?  Why do we want their money? why can’t we move on with life and stop hurting people?

Families should be closer when someone dies, not torn further apart. 

 I suggest to all my readers young and old —  prepare a WILL today.  It doesn’t matter if all you have is a ring, clothes. or a lawn mower in the backyard. 

Have you seen what’s happening to Prince, the artist. Estate? And he has a lot.  Fighting,  bickering, back biting, and people coming out of the woodwork to claim his money.  All of this could have been avoided.

 Of a sound mind and body

Prepare a Will today,  even if it’s something on a small piece of paper with your signature.   A small piece of paper can carry a lot of weight in the end.   It can cease a lot of arguing for small pettiness that really doesn’t matter in the scheme of things.

Life’s worth

Isn’t a life worth more than possessions.  Love should matter more than hate.  Constant  fighting and trying to get things is not worth the pain you’re causing your family– your flesh and blood.  

Love on another

Families should be together, not torn apart for property.  I feel so hurt that my family has fallen apart and continue to fall apart for 10 years now and The Saga never ends. 

The battle 

It’s a constant battle for nothing because your beloved one will never come back.   Once you’ve decided to sow division, you will continue living with hatred in your heart.  You can not live and sleep in peace with hatred.  The heart is meant to love, not hate. You are going against the grain of life.

 The heart is meant to love, not hate.  You are going against the grain.

We remember what we need to forget and forget what we we need to remember. (Victoria Osteen)  

I’m done.

Have you experienced family division due to death?  How does it make you feel? Did you all resolve the situation?  How have you coped with it? Who was tbe glue that held your family together?

    Do you mind if I quote a couple of your posts as long as I provide credit and sources back to your site? My website is in the very same area of interest as yours and my visitors would really benefit from a lot of the information you provide here. Pleas…

    1. Thank you for taking time to send us an inquiry. Certainly, you may quote us. If you don’t mind, please send us a link to your post. Thank you and have a blessed day.

  2. This post spoke volumes. My youngest brother passed away in 2013 its been difficult to move forward at times but I continue to press on and my family is finally beginning to heal but there was so much anger and bickering in the beginning that I distanced myself from my family. We are all slowly beginning to heal. I observed fighting over material things when my grandmother passed as well. My mother’s siblings fought over things that were not left in the will for them and it was disastrous. Relationships continue to suffer because of greed. My grandmother passed over 10 yrs ago and her children’s behavior in her absence will never be forgotten. I pray that they all heal and move forward. Tomorrow is not promised.

    1. OMG, I feel every word and your testimony. Sending sincere condolences for your brothers passing. That’s difficult. My mom passed 10 years ago and its been a battle the entire time. My maternal grandmother passed several years after my mom and the families have never been the same. We were always close. It’s horrible, but this allows you and me to see who held the families together. I’m happy you guys are finding a way to heal. Life is short, we are not promised tomorrow. Continue writing. I love your articles. God has a plan for you. Thank you for taking time to comment. I appreciate you.

      1. Thank you sooo much. And anytime. 🙂

  3. […] It is very important that you teach your children about money as early as possible. If you want your children to handle money successfully, you must teach them exactly how to be money smart. If your children are young enough not to have picked up any bad money habits, you still have a chance to start out on the right foot. However, if your children constantly bug you for money or have no concept of its value, it’s time to make some changes, and QUICK. Habits can be changed and money dilemmas solved. Every family is different in how they run their household, but there are some basic ground rules for teaching all children about money. […]
