6 Colossians 3:5 NLT So put to death the sinful, earthly things lurking within you. Have nothing to do with sexual immorality, impurity, lust, and evil desires. Don’t be greedy, for a greedy person is an idolater, worshiping the things of this world.

7 Luke 12:15 NLT 15 Then he said, “Beware! Guard against every kind of greed. Life is not measured by how much you own.”

8 Luke 19:1-10 (NIV 1984) 3 He wanted to see who Jesus was, but being a short man he could not, because of the crowd 4 So he ran ahead and climbed a sycamore- fig tree to see him, since Jesus was coming that way.

Here and now I give half of my possessions to the poor, and if I have cheated anybody out of anything, I will pay back four times the amount.”

14 Luke 19:1-10 (NIV 1984) 9 Jesus said to him, “Today salvation has come to this house, because this man, too, is a son of Abraham. 10 For the Son of Man came to seek and to save what was lost.”
