If I speak with the languages of men and of angels, but don’t have love, I have become sounding brass, or a clanging cymbal.                If I have the gift of prophecy, and know all mysteries and all knowledge; and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but don’t have love, I am nothing.                If I dole out all my goods to feed the poor, and if I give my body to be burned, but don’t have love, it profits me nothing.                Love is patient and is kind; love doesn’t envy. Love doesn’t brag, is not proud,                doesn’t behave itself inappropriately, doesn’t seek its own way, is not provoked, takes no account of evil; 13:6 doesn’t rejoice in unrighteousness, but rejoices with the truth;                bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.                Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will be done away with. Where there are various languages, they will cease. Where there is knowledge, it will be done away with.

To son and wife, to brother and friend,
Give not power over you while you live;
And give not your goods to another,
Lest you repent and make supplication for them again.
Whilst you yet live, and breath is in you,
Give not yourself over to anybody.
For better it is that your children should supplicate you,
Than that you should look to the hand of your sons.
In all your works keep the upper hand;
Bring not a stain on your honor.
In the day that you endest the days of your life,
And in the time of death, distribute your inheritance.

And he that follows destruction shall himself have his fill of it.
Many have been given over to ruin for the sake of gold;

And that goes not after gold.

Proverbs 20:21

To obtain and multiply earthly goods, then, will not help you, but to despise them and root them out of your heart will aid. This, understand, is true not only of money and wealth, but also of ambition for honor and desire for empty praise, all of which will pass away with this world.

Thomas à Kempis "The Imitation Of Christ"

Use temporal things but desire eternal things. You cannot be satisfied with any temporal goods because you were not created to enjoy them. Even if you possessed all created things you could not be happy and blessed; for in God, Who created all these things, your whole blessedness and happiness consists - not indeed such happiness as is seen and praised by lovers of the world, but such as that for which the good and faithful servants of Christ wait, and of which the spiritual and pure of heart, whose conversation is in heaven, sometime have a foretaste.

Thomas à Kempis "The Imitation Of Christ"

They seek a petty reward, and sometimes fight shamefully in law courts for a single piece of money.
They are not afraid to work day and night for a trifle or an empty promise.
But, for an unchanging good, for a reward beyond estimate, for the greatest honor and for glory everlasting, it must be said to their shame that men begrudge even the least fatigue.
Be ashamed, then, lazy and complaining servant, that they should be found more eager for perdition than you are for life, that they rejoice more in vanity than you in truth.
Sometimes indeed their expectations fail them, but My promise never deceives, nor does it send away empty-handed him who trusts in Me.
What I have promised I will give. What I have said I will fulfill, if only a man remain faithful in My love to the end.

Thomas à Kempis "The Imitation Of Christ"

There is that waxes rich by his wariness and pinching, And this is the portion of his reward:

When he says, I have found rest, And now I will eat of my goods; Yet he knows not what time will pass, And he will leave them to others, and die.

The Wisdom of Jesus the Son of Sirach 11:18-19

My son, be not busy about many matters: For if you meddle much, you will not be unpunished; And if you pursue, you will not overtake; And you will not escape by fleeing.

The Wisdom of Jesus the Son of Sirach 11:10

Set not your heart upon your goods; And say not, They are sufficient for me.

The Wisdom of Jesus the Son of Sirach 5:1

Incline your ear to a poor man, And answer him with peaceful words in meekness.

The Wisdom of Jesus the Son of Sirach 4:8

Whoever robs his father or his mother, and says, "It's not wrong." He is a partner with a destroyer.

One who works his land will have an abundance of food; but one who chases fantasies will have his fill of poverty.

Proverbs 28:19

Whoever walks blamelessly is kept safe; but one with perverse ways will fall suddenly.

Proverbs 28:18

Unless Yahweh builds the house, they labor in vain who build it. Unless Yahweh watches over the city, the watchman guards it in vain.

The Psalms 127:1

He who loves silver shall not be satisfied with silver; nor he who loves abundance, with increase: this also is vanity.

When goods increase, those who eat them are increased; and what advantage is there to its owner, except to feast on them with his eyes?

The sleep of a laboring man is sweet, whether he eats little or much; but the abundance of the rich will not allow him to sleep.

There is a grievous evil which I have seen under the sun: wealth kept by its owner to his harm.

Those riches perish by misfortune, and if he has fathered a son, there is nothing in his hand.

As he came forth from his mother's womb, naked shall he go again as he came, and shall take nothing for his labor, which he may carry away in his hand.

This also is a grievous evil, that in all points as he came, so shall he go. And what profit does he have who labors for the wind?

All his days he also eats in darkness, he is frustrated, and has sickness and wrath.

Ecclesiastes 5:10-17

He that loves gold shall not be justified; and he that follows destruction shall himself have his fill of it.

Many have been given over to ruin for the sake of gold; and their perdition † meets them face to face.

It is a stumbling block to those who sacrifice to it; and every fool shall be taken therewith.

Blessed is the rich that is found without blemish, and that goes not after gold.

The Wisdom of Jesus the Son of Sirach 31:5-8

The Lord wants to teach us to properly manage the wealth entrusted for us. We must remember that everything we have belongs to the Lord. We are only managers.

The Wisdom of Jesus the Son of Sirach 19:1

Bestow your treasure according to the commandments of the Most High; And it shall profit you more than gold.

The Wisdom of Jesus the Son of Sirach 29:9-11

Will a man rob God? Yet you rob me! But you say, 'How have we robbed you?' In tithes and offerings.

You are cursed with the curse; for you rob me, even this whole nation.

Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house, and test me now in this," says Yahweh of Armies, "if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough for.

I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes, and he shall not destroy the fruits of your ground; neither shall your vine cast its fruit before its time in the field," says Yahweh of Armies.

Proverbs 20:13

I went by the field of the sluggard, by the vineyard of the man void of understanding; Behold, it was all grown over with thorns. Its surface was covered with nettles, and its stone wall was broken down.

but let him who glories glory in this, that he has understanding, and knows me, that I am Yahweh who exercises loving kindness, justice, and righteousness, in the earth: for in these things I delight, says Yahweh.

A man who has riches without understanding, is like the animals that perish.

The Psalms 49:20

Be free from the love of money, content with such things as you have, for he has said, "I will in no way leave you, neither will I in any way forsake you."

Do not be overawed when others grow rich, when the splendor of their houses increases;
for they will take nothing with them when they die, their splendor will not descend with them.

Psalm, 49:16-17

No one can redeem the life of another or give to God a ransom for them—
the ransom for a life is costly, no payment is ever enough—
so that they should live on forever and not see decay.
For all can see that the wise die, that the foolish and the senseless also perish, leaving their wealth to others.

Psalm, 49:7-10

Prayer is good with fasting and alms and righteousness. A little with righteousness is better than much with unrighteousness.

The world is passing away with its lusts, but he who does God's will remains forever.

It happened that the beggar died, and that he was carried away by the angels to Abraham's bosom. The rich man also died, and was buried. In Hades, he lifted up his eyes, being in torment, and saw Abraham far off, and Lazarus at his bosom. He cried and said, ‘Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and cool my tongue! For I am in anguish in this flame.'

Isn't life more than food, and the body more than clothing? 6:26 See the birds of the sky, that they don't sow, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns. Your heavenly Father feeds them. Aren't you of much more value than they?

6:27 “Which of you, by being anxious, can add one moment to his lifespan? 6:28 Why are you anxious about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow. They don't toil, neither do they spin, 6:29 yet I tell you that even Solomon in all his glory was not dressed like one of these. 6:30 But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today exists, and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, won't he much more clothe you, you of little faith?

6:31 “Therefore don't be anxious, saying, ‘What will we eat?', ‘What will we drink?' or, ‘With what will we be clothed?' 6:32 For the Gentiles seek after all these things; for your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. 6:33 But seek first God's Kingdom, and his righteousness; and all these things will be given to you as well. 6:34 Therefore don't be anxious for tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Each day's own evil is sufficient.
