Riches/Money – 8

“Whoever can be trusted with very little can also be trusted with much, and whoever is dishonest with very little will also be dishonest with much. “

So if you have not been trustworthy in handling worldly wealth, who will trust you with true riches? And if you have not been trustworthy with someone else’s property, who will give you property of your own?

“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.”

The Pharisees, who loved money, heard all this and were sneering at Jesus.

He said to them, “You are the ones who justify yourselves in the eyes of others, but God knows your hearts. What people value highly is detestable in God’s sight.”

Those who trust in their riches will fall, but the righteous will thrive like a green leaf. … Better a little with the fear of the Lord than great wealth with turmoil. … Better a little with righteousness than much gain with injustice.

A faithful person will be richly blessed, but one eager to get rich will not go unpunished … The stingy are eager to get rich and are unaware that poverty awaits them.
