_greed_trust

[толкование слова greedy...]If you describe someone as greedy, you mean that they want to have
more of something such as food or money than is necessary or fair.
He attacked greedy bosses for awarding themselves big rises.
She is greedy and selfish.


Once, a rich and greedy man fell seriously ill. He called many learned doctors to treat him but no one could give him proper medicines to cure his ailment. In desperation, the ill-man prayed to the God, "God, if you save me from death due to this illness, I will sacrifice a hundred bulls at your altar."

God heard his prayers and cured him. Once the rich man regained his health, his greed overcame him. So, to save his money, he had a hundred tiny idols of bulls made and offered them to the temple fire and said, "God please accept my gift of thanks."

God grew angry that the man had broken his promise and had not offered live bulls to him. So God decided to punish him. God appeared in his dream and said, "Go to the seashore in the morning. You will get a hundred gold coins for yourself."

The greedy man went to the seashore next happily. There a ship of pirates had arrived. The pirates imprisoned the greedy man. They went to another country and sold him as a slave. So they got a hundred gold coins for him.
