15 Bible Verses about Greed

« ecclesiastes 5:10 »
Whoever loves money never has enough;
whoever loves wealth is never satisfied with their income.
This too is meaningless.
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.
Then he said to them, “Watch out! Be on your guard against all kinds of greed; life does not consist in an abundance of possessions.”
What good is it for someone to gain the whole world, yet forfeit their soul?
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.
Dishonest money dwindles away,
but whoever gathers money little by little makes it grow.
All day long he craves for more,
but the righteous give without sparing.
Do not wear yourself out to get rich;
do not trust your own cleverness.
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.
Everyone comes naked from their mother’s womb,
and as everyone comes, so they depart.
They take nothing from their toil
that they can carry in their hands.
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.
Put to death, therefore, whatever belongs to your earthly nature: sexual immorality, impurity, lust, evil desires and greed, which is idolatry.
But among you there must not be even a hint of sexual immorality, or of any kind of impurity, or of greed, because these are improper for God’s holy people.
Turn my heart toward your statutes
and not toward selfish gain.
This is also why you pay taxes, for the authorities are God’s servants, who give their full time to governing.
