In our last lesson, we see how Judas Iscariot allow devil to used his heart to accomplished his evil planned against Jesus Christ.
Gehazi the follower of Prophet Elisa allowed his heart to be ruled and ruined with greediness. He requested and collected what is not belong to him.
* What his master (Elisa) saw and rejected as evil, Gehazi embraced it and forcefully collected it with lie and deceit.
2Kings 5: 20-23
“But Gehazi, the servant of Elisha the man of God, said, Behold, my master spared this Naaman the Syrian, in not receiving from his hands what he brought. But as the Lord lives, I will run after him and get something from him. So Gehazi set off after Naaman. When Naaman saw Gehazi running after him, he climbed down from his chariot and went to meet him. “Is everything all right?” Naaman asked. And he said, All is well. My master has sent me to say, There have just come to me from the hill country of Ephraim two young men of the sons of the prophets. I pray you, give them a talent of silver and two changes of garments. And Naaman said, Be pleased to take two talents. And he urged him, and bound two talents of silver in two bags with two changes of garments and laid them upon two of his servants, and they bore them before Gehazi.”
Gehazi allowed devil to fool his heart and eventually he end his life with leprosy.
Anything man allow to dominate his heart will definitely rule him and at end ruin him.
Greediness is satanic virus that can kill and destroy at anytime. Many so called believers of today allow greediness and covetousness to ruin them.

Gehazi thought that his master did not see him, but the greatest Master revealed what he did to his earthly master – Elisha.
Hear what his master told him:
“When he went in to his master, Elisha asked him, “Where have you been, Gehazi?” “I haven’t been anywhere,” he replied.. Elisha said to him, Did not my spirit go with you when the man turned from his chariot to meet you? Was it a time to accept money, garments, olive orchards, vineyards, sheep, oxen, menservants, and maidservants?” 2kings 5:25-26
