The reality for me is that I have more than I need, does that make me greedy?

I am not rich by my community standards, but I eat more food than my body needs because I can, does that make me greedy?

At what point does my having extra make me greedy? Is a banker who makes millions but gives little to charity greedy? What about Bill Gates who gives away more millions every year than most millionaires make in a year. Is he greedy?

The bible says that Greed is one of the seven deadly sins, yet most millionaires in the US would probably define themselves as Christian.

There are a lot of nuances to greed. I don't think the question is valid.
