You have truth there, Roberto. The Bible tell us in 2 Timothy2-4 "This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;" As you said greedy Too many people want to please themselves rather than wanting to help others and please God. Romans 3:23 says that "all have sinned and come short of the glory of God" and Romans 623a says "the wages of sin is death". That is what greed does. There is good news though in the 2nd part of that same verse "the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord." That is God's solution to man's overwhelming greed. The Bible calls it salvation. Like any other gift salvation must be received for it to do any good. Jesus died to pay the penalty for my sin, your sin, everyone's sin so we can have eternal life and not be destroyed when this world ends. Jesus offers this gift to all of us. I hope you have received this gift personally. If not you can have it right now and forever. Just tell Jesus you don't wantto be owned by greed and other sin and ask him to take that away and give you His salvation.
1Peter 2:24 Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.

And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me. ... Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me. Matthew 25:40 & 45
