Scriptural references for:

The deceitfulness of riches

Verbatim references:


Et sic de similibus references:

Everyday spent with God is a day worth living and everyday without God is a day where you will suffer loss.
What would it profit a man if he gains the whole world but loses his soul.

Brethren, be not deceived by the deceitfulness of riches which appear to give you the promise of inner peace and joy, if only you had a little more.

The perception that riches would bring into your life a state of happiness and bliss is only an illusion, a mirage in the desert.

A man who puts his trust in riches and does not walk with God is a spiritual pauper, desperately poor in spiritual virtue, lacking in anything truly worthwhile, is to be pitied and not admired.

Brethren, true riches are the riches of the soul and the spirit.
