Gift of Goodness

Gift of Goodness – November 13, 2021

A bit of goodness to start your day.

What does God say about greed?

  • Whoever loves money never has enough; whoever loves wealth is never satisfied with their income. This too is meaningless. Ecclesiastes 5:10
  • Those who want to get rich fall into temptation and a trap and into many foolish and harmful desires that plunge people into ruin and destruction. 1 Timothy 6:9
  • For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil. Some people, eager for money, have wandered from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs. 1 Timothy 6:10
  • What good is it for someone to gain the whole world, yet forfeit their soul? Mark 8:36
  • Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moths and vermin destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moths and vermin do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. Mathew 6:19-20
  • Dishonest money dwindles away, but whoever gathers money little by little makes it grow. Proverbs 13:11
  • Do not wear yourself out to get rich; do not trust your own cleverness. Proverbs 23:4
  • Turn my heart toward your statutes and not toward selfish gain. Psalm 119:36
  • No one can serve two masters. Either you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money. Matthew 6:24
  • Put to death, therefore, whatever belongs to your earthly nature: sexual immorality, impurity, lust, evil desires, and greed, which is idolatry. Colossians 3:5

Today I will watch out and be on guard against all kinds of greed knowing that life does not consist in an abundance of possessions. Luke 12:15
