Treasury of Scripture Knowledge
Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal:
"If I have put my confidence in gold, And called fine gold my trust,
"Surely every man walks about as a phantom; Surely they make an uproar for nothing; He amasses riches and does not know who will gather them.
Do not trust in oppression And do not vainly hope in robbery; If riches increase, do not set your heart upon them.
Riches do not profit in the day of wrath, But righteousness delivers from death.
How much better it is to get wisdom than gold! And to get understanding is to be chosen above silver.
When you set your eyes on it, it is gone. For wealth certainly makes itself wings Like an eagle that flies toward the heavens.
For to a person who is good in His sight He has given wisdom and knowledge and joy, while to the sinner He has given the task of gathering and collecting so that he may give to one who is good in God's sight This too is vanity and striving after wind.
He who loves money will not be satisfied with money, nor he who loves abundance with its income. This too is vanity.
Neither their silver nor their gold Will be able to deliver them On the day of the LORD'S wrath; And all the earth will be devoured In the fire of His jealousy, For He will make a complete end, Indeed a terrifying one, Of all the inhabitants of the earth.
"So is the man who stores up treasure for himself, and is not rich toward God."
And Jesus looked at him and said, "How hard it is for those who are wealthy to enter the kingdom of God!
1 Timothy 6:8
If we have food and covering, with these we shall be content.
Make sure that your character is free from the love of money, being content with what you have; for He Himself has said, "I WILL NEVER DESERT YOU, NOR WILL I EVER FORSAKE YOU,"
Come now, you rich, weep and howl for your miseries which are coming upon you.
1 John 2:15
Do not love the world nor the things in the world If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him.
