Honor the LORD with your wealth and with the first of all your produce,
Now Jesus looked up and saw rich people dropping their gifts into the offering box.
As Jesus sat facing the offering box, he watched how the crowd was dropping their money into it. Many rich people were dropping in large amounts.
"I'm telling you, make friends for yourselves by means of unrighteous wealth, so that when it fails, they will welcome you into eternal homes.
Wealth brings many friends, but a poor man is deserted by his friend.
So if you haven't been faithful with unrighteous wealth, who will trust you with true wealth?
They sang with a loud voice, "Worthy is the lamb who was slaughtered to receive power, wealth, wisdom, strength, honor, glory, and praise!"
Whoever oppresses the poor to enrich himself and whoever gives gifts to the wealthy will yield only loss.
