Bible Verses about Materialism

  • For we brought nothing into the world, and we can take nothing out of it. But if we have food and clothing, we will be content with that.
  • Whoever loves money never has enough;
    whoever loves wealth is never satisfied with their income.
    This too is meaningless.
  • 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.
  • What good is it for someone to gain the whole world, yet forfeit their soul?
  • 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.”
  • Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said, “Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.”
  • So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.
  • 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.
  • Better a little with the fear of the Lord
    than great wealth with turmoil.
  • 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.
  • For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.
  • How much better to get wisdom than gold,
    to get insight rather than silver!
  • Jesus answered, “If you want to be perfect, go, sell your possessions and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me.”
  • I also want the women to dress modestly, with decency and propriety, adorning themselves, not with elaborate hairstyles or gold or pearls or expensive clothes, but with good deeds, appropriate for women who profess to worship God.
  • Command those who are rich in this present world not to be arrogant nor to put their hope in wealth, which is so uncertain, but to put their hope in God, who richly provides us with everything for our enjoyment.
  • Put to death, therefore, whatever belongs to your earthly nature: sexual immorality, impurity, lust, evil desires and greed, which is idolatry.
  • Keep falsehood and lies far from me;
    give me neither poverty nor riches,
    but give me only my daily bread.
  • What good will it be for someone to gain the whole world, yet forfeit their soul? Or what can anyone give in exchange for their soul?
  • But godliness with contentment is great gain.
  • A good name is more desirable than great riches;
    to be esteemed is better than silver or gold.
  • All day long he craves for more,
    but the righteous give without sparing.
  • Wealth is worthless in the day of wrath,
    but righteousness delivers from death.
  • Cast but a glance at riches, and they are gone,
    for they will surely sprout wings
    and fly off to the sky like an eagle.
  • All the believers were one in heart and mind. No one claimed that any of their possessions was their own, but they shared everything they had.
  • The wealth of the rich is their fortified city;
    they imagine it a wall too high to scale.

If anyone has material possessions and sees a brother or sister in need but has no pity on them, how can the love of God be in that person?
