1 John 2:16 For all that is in the world—the desires of the flesh and the desires of the eyes and pride in possessions—is not from the Father but is from the world.
Luke 12:15 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.”
Luke 16:19-31 and Matthew 19:16-30
We live in a materialistic society. We are driven to obtain more and more. We work hard, long hours to acquire more and to maintain all the things we already own.
