Proverbs 15:27; Proverbs 28:20; Matthew 6:19; 1 Timothy 6:9–10; Hebrews 13:5
27 Whoever is vgreedy for unjust gain wtroubles his own household,
but he who hates xbribes will live.
20 A faithful man will abound with blessings,
but whoever hastens to be rich jwill not go unpunished.
Lay Up Treasures in Heaven
19 x“Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where ymoth and rust1 destroy and where thieves zbreak in and steal,
9 But fthose who desire to be rich fall into temptation, ginto a snare, into many senseless and harmful desires that hplunge people into ruin and destruction. 10 For the love of money is a root of iall kinds of evils. It is through this craving that some have wandered away from the faith and pierced themselves with many pangs.
5 Keep your life afree from love of money, and bbe content with what you have, for he has said, c“I will never leave you nor forsake you.”
