The thoughts of the diligent tend only to plenty; but the thoughts of everyone who is hasty only to poverty.
A prudent one foresees the evil and hides himself, but the simple pass on and are punished.
He who has no rule over his own spirit is like a broken down city without a wall.
A prudent man sees evil and hides himself, the naive proceed and pay the penalty.
Know well the face of your flocks; and pay attention to your herds.
The lambs are for your clothing, and the goats are the price of the field.
For which of you, intending to build a tower, does not sit down first and count the cost, whether he may have enough to finish it; lest perhaps, after he has laid the foundation and is not able to finish, all those seeing begin to mock him, saying, This man began to build and was not able to finish.
The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want.
Whoever loves money never has money enough; whoever loves wealth is never satisfied with his income. This too is meaningless.
“Do not worry then, saying, ‘What will we eat?’ or ‘What will we drink?’ or ‘What will we wear for clothing?’ “For the Gentiles eagerly seek all these things; for your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. “But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.
Some soldiers were questioning him, saying, “And what about us, what shall we do?” And he said to them, “Do not take money from anyone by force, or accuse anyone falsely, and be content with your wages.”
For I have learned to be content, whatever the circumstances may be. I know now how to live when things are difficult and I know how to live when things are prosperous. In general and in particular I have learned the secret of eating well or going hungry of facing either plenty of poverty. I am ready for anything through the strength of the One who lives within me.
1 Thessalonians 4:11
And to make it your ambition to lead a quiet life and attend to your own business and work with your hands, just as we commanded you…
But godliness actually is a means of great gain when accompanied by contentment.
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. People who want to get rich fall into temptation and a trap and into many foolish and harmful desires that plunge men into ruin and destruction. 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.
Keep your life free from the love of money, and be content with what you have.
Owe nothing to anyone except to love one another; for he who loves his neighbor has fulfilled the law.
If a man borrows anything from his neighbor, and it is injured or dies while its owner is not with it, he shall make full restitution.
For the Lord your God will bless you as He has promised you, and you will lend to many nations, but you will not borrow; and you will rule over many nations, but they will not rule over you.
The Lord will open for you His good storehouse, the heavens, to give rain to your land in its season and to bless all the work of your hand; and you shall lend to many nations, but you shall not borrow.
2 Kings 4:7
Then she came and told the man of God. And he said, “Go, sell the oil and pay your debt, and you and your sons can live on the rest.”
The wicked borrows and does not pay back, but the righteous is gracious and gives.
The rich rules over the poor, and the borrower becomes the lender’s slave.
Do not be a man who strikes hands in pledge or puts up security for debts; if you lack the means to pay, your very bed will be snatched from under you.
It is better that you should not vow than that you should vow and not pay.
