15 Bible Verses about Greed - ESV

English Standard Version (ESV)
He who loves money will not be satisfied with money, nor he who loves wealth with his income; this also is vanity.
But those who desire to be rich fall into temptation, into a snare, into many senseless and harmful desires that plunge people into ruin and destruction.
And he said to them, “Take care, and be on your guard against all covetousness, for one's life does not consist in the abundance of his possessions.”
For what does it profit a man to gain the whole world and forfeit his soul?
Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal, but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal.
Wealth gained hastily will dwindle,
but whoever gathers little by little will increase it.
For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evils. It is through this craving that some have wandered away from the faith and pierced themselves with many pangs.
All day long he craves and craves,
but the righteous gives and does not hold back.
Do not toil to acquire wealth;
be discerning enough to desist.
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.
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.
Put to death therefore what is earthly in you: sexual immorality, impurity, passion, evil desire, and covetousness, which is idolatry.
Incline my heart to your testimonies,
and not to selfish gain!
But sexual immorality and all impurity or covetousness must not even be named among you, as is proper among saints.
For because of this you also pay taxes, for the authorities are ministers of God, attending to this very thing.
Bible verse of the day
james 1:9-10
Believers in humble circumstances ought to take pride in their high position. But the rich should take pride in their humiliation—since they will pass away like a wild flower.
