But those riches perish through misfortune; When he begets a son, there is nothing in his hand.


Ecclesiastes 5:13-16
13
There is a grievous evil that I have seen under the sun: riches were kept by their owner to his hurt,
14
and those riches were lost in a bad venture. And he is father of a son, but he has nothing in his hand.
15
As he came from his mother's womb he shall go again, naked as he came, and shall take nothing for his toil that he may carry away in his hand.
16
This also is a grievous evil: just as he came, so shall he go, and what gain is there to him who toils for the wind?

At the end of seventy years, the LORD will visit Tyre, and she will return to her wages and will prostitute herself with all the kingdoms of the world on the face of the earth.
18
Her merchandise and her wages will be holy to the LORD. It will not be stored or hoarded, but her merchandise will supply abundant food and fine clothing for those who dwell before the LORD.

Micah 6:10-15
10
Can I forget any longer the treasures of wickedness in the house of the wicked, and the scant measure that is accursed?
11
Shall I acquit the man with wicked scales and with a bag of deceitful weights?
12
Your rich men are full of violence; your inhabitants speak lies, and their tongue is deceitful in their mouth.
13
Therefore I strike you with a grievous blow, making you desolate because of your sins.
14
You shall eat, but not be satisfied, and there shall be hunger within you; you shall put away, but not preserve, and what you preserve I will give to the sword.
15
You shall sow, but not reap; you shall tread olives, but not anoint yourselves with oil; you shall tread grapes, but not drink wine.

James 5:1-6
1
Come now, you rich, weep and howl for the miseries that are coming upon you.
2
Your riches have rotted and your garments are moth-eaten.
3
Your gold and silver have corroded, and their corrosion will be evidence against you and will eat your flesh like fire. You have laid up treasure in the last days.
4
Behold, the wages of the laborers who mowed your fields, which you kept back by fraud, are crying out against you, and the cries of the harvesters have reached the ears of the Lord of hosts.
5
You have lived on the earth in luxury and in self-indulgence. You have fattened your hearts in a day of slaughter.
6
You have condemned and murdered the righteous person. He does not resist you.

Luke 12:18-31
18
And he said, ‘I will do this: I will tear down my barns and build larger ones, and there I will store all my grain and my goods.
19
And I will say to my soul, “Soul, you have ample goods laid up for many years; relax, eat, drink, be merry.”’
20
But God said to him, ‘Fool! This night your soul is required of you, and the things you have prepared, whose will they be?’
21
So is the one who lays up treasure for himself and is not rich toward God.”
22
And he said to his disciples, “Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you will eat, nor about your body, what you will put on.
23
For life is more than food, and the body more than clothing.
24
Consider the ravens: they neither sow nor reap, they have neither storehouse nor barn, and yet God feeds them. Of how much more value are you than the birds!
25
And which of you by being anxious can add a single hour to his span of life?
26
If then you are not able to do as small a thing as that, why are you anxious about the rest?
27
Consider the lilies, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin, yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.
28
But if God so clothes the grass, which is alive in the field today, and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, how much more will he clothe you, O you of little faith!
29
And do not seek what you are to eat and what you are to drink, nor be worried.
30
For all the nations of the world seek after these things, and your Father knows that you need them.
31
Instead, seek his kingdom, and these things will be added to you.

Luke Chapter 12:18-31

But God said to him, 'Fool! This night your soul will be required of you; then whose will those things be which you have provided?

Luke 12:18-31
18
And he said, ‘I will do this: I will tear down my barns and build larger ones, and there I will store all my grain and my goods.
19
And I will say to my soul, “Soul, you have ample goods laid up for many years; relax, eat, drink, be merry.”’
20
But God said to him, ‘Fool! This night your soul is required of you, and the things you have prepared, whose will they be?’
21
So is the one who lays up treasure for himself and is not rich toward God.”
22
And he said to his disciples, “Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you will eat, nor about your body, what you will put on.

Matthew 6:19-33
19
“Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal,
20
but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal.
21
For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.
22
“The eye is the lamp of the body. So, if your eye is healthy, your whole body will be full of light,
23
but if your eye is bad, your whole body will be full of darkness. If then the light in you is darkness, how great is the darkness!
24
“No one can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and money.
25
“Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing?
26
Look at the birds of the air: they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they?
27
And which of you by being anxious can add a single hour to his span of life?
28
And why are you anxious about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin,
29
yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.
30
But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is alive and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will he not much more clothe you, O you of little faith?
31
Therefore do not be anxious, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’
32
For the Gentiles seek after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them all.
33
But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.
