13 Then someone from the crowd said to him, “Teacher, tell my brother to divide the inheritance with me.” 14 But Jesus said to him, “Man, who made me a judge or arbitrator between you two?” 15 Then he said to them, “Watch out and guard yourself from all types of greed, because one’s life does not consist in the abundance of his possessions.”
Real quick...Jesus only did what his Father told him to do. The Father did not ask him to be these two brother's "arbitrator". So...what are you in the middle of that God has not told you to do? It is my opinion, that the greatest sign of spiritual maturity is that you, like Jesus, only do what the Father ask you to do.
“Watch out and guard yourself from all types of greed, because one’s life does not consist in the abundance of his possessions.”
Was Jesus speaking to the younger brother who wanted some of his brother's inheritance? Or, was he speaking to the older brother who didn't want to share? Or, maybe both?
Don't stay too long on these questions because you might miss the main point. Pay attention to your life that you don't get greedy. Your life is not about abundance of possessions.
If you love to have more. Here's how you fight it...give stuff away. The greatest antidote for greed is generosity.
