Proverbs 11:28 (MSG) A life devoted to things is a dead life, a stump; a God-shaped life is a flourishing tree.
Luke 12:15, 22-34 (HCSB) 15He then told them, “Watch out and be on guard against all greed because one’s life is not in the abundance of his possessions.”… 22Then He said to His disciples: “Therefore I tell you, don’t worry about your life, what you will eat; or about the body, what you will wear. 23For life is more than food and the body more than clothing. 24Consider the ravens: they don’t sow or reap; they don’t have a storeroom or a barn; yet God feeds them. Aren’t you worth much more than the birds? 25Can any of you add a cubit to his height by worrying? 26If then you’re not able to do even a little thing, why worry about the rest? 27″Consider how the wildflowers grow: they don’t labor or spin thread. Yet I tell you, not even Solomon in all his splendor was adorned like one of these! 28If that’s how God clothes the grass, which is in the field today and is thrown into the furnace tomorrow, how much more will He do for you-you of little faith?29Don’t keep striving for what you should eat and what you should drink, and don’t be anxious. 30For the Gentile world eagerly seeks all these things, and your Father knows that you need them. 31“But seek His kingdom, and these things will be provided for you. 32Don’t be afraid, little flock, because your Father delights to give you the kingdom. 33Sell your possessions and give to the poor. Make moneybags for yourselves that won’t grow old, an inexhaustible treasure in heaven, where no thief comes near and no moth destroys. 34For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.”
Ecclesiastes 5:10-11 (MSG) The one who loves money is never satisfied with money, Nor the one who loves wealth with big profits. More smoke. The more loot you get, the more looters show up. And what fun is that—to be robbed in broad daylight?
Matthew 19:16, 21-24 (NLT) 16“Teacher, what good deed must I do to have eternal life?”… 21Jesus told him, “If you want to be perfect, go and sell all your possessions and give the money to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me.” 22But when the young man heard this, he went away sad, for he had many possessions. 23Then Jesus said to his disciples, “I tell you the truth, it is very hard for a rich person to enter the Kingdom of Heaven. 24I’ll say it again—it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich person to enter the Kingdom of God!”
Proverbs 18:11 (TLB) The rich man thinks of his wealth as an impregnable defense, a high wall of safety. What a dreamer!
Acts 20:35 (GN) Lord Jesus himself said, ‘There is more happiness in giving than in receiving.’
Proverbs 11:28 (MSG) The one who blesses others is abundantly blessed; those who help others are helped.
Isaiah 43:4 (GN) You are precious to me. You are honored, and I love you.
Matthew 6:26 (NLT) Look at the birds… Your heavenly Father feeds them. And aren’t you far more valuable to him than they are?
Romans 5:8 (GN) But God has shown us how much he loves us—it was while we were still sinners that Christ died for us!
Hebrews 13:5 (NIV) Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said, “Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.”
Psalm 23:1 (NIV) The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
Matthew 6:19-21 (ESV) “Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal, but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.”
Philippians 4:19 (ESV) And my God will supply every need of yours according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus.
