Are laziness, eating too much and greed considered sins in Islam?

Q: Are laziness, eating too much and greed considered sins in Islam?

A: As long as it does not cause you to disobey Allah in any way, such as not keeping you away from performing namaaz on time and fulfilling your obligations to Allah and people then it is not a sin. Overeating to the point where it can cause physical harm is not permissible. The feeling of greed is not a sin, but to respond to the requirements of greed can be sinful.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
