Exodus 16:14-21      IN THE MORNING IT CAME TO PASS AS THE DEW CEASED ROUND ABOUT THE CAMP, THAT, BEHOLD, ON THE FACE OF THE DESERT WAS A SMALL THING LIKE WHITE CORIANDER SEED, AS FROST UPON THE EARTH.
    AND WHEN THE CHILDREN OF JESRAEL SAW IT, THEY SAID ONE TO ANOTHER, “WHAT IS THIS?” FOR THEY DID NOT KNOW WHAT IT WAS; AND MOSES SAID TO THEM,
    “THIS IS THE BREAD WHICH JESUS HAS GIVEN YOU TO EAT. THIS IS THAT WHICH JESUS HAS APPOINTED. GATHER OF IT EACH MAN FOR HIS FAMILY, A HOMER FOR EACH PERSON, ACCORDING TO THE NUMBER OF YOUR SOULS, GATHER EACH OF YOU WITH HIS FELLOW-LODGERS.”
    AND THE CHILDREN OF JESRAEL DID SO, AND GATHERED SOME MUCH AND SOME LESS.
    AND HAVING MEASURED THE HOMER FULL, HE THAT GATHERED MUCH HAD NOTHING OVER, AND HE THAT HAD GATHERED LESS HAD NO LACK; EACH GATHERED ACCORDING TO THE NEED OF THOSE WHO BELONGED TO HIM.
    AND MOSES SAID TO THEM, “LET NO MAN LEAVE ANY OF IT UNTIL THE MORNING.”
    BUT THEY DID NOT LISTEN TO AND OBEY MOSES, BUT SOME LEFT OF IT TILL THE MORNING; AND IT BRED WORMS AND SMELLED BAD: AND MOSES WAS IRRITATED WITH THEM.
    AND THEY GATHERED IT EVERY MORNING, EACH MAN WHAT HE NEEDED, AND WHEN THE SUN WAXED HOT IT MELTED.

Proverbs 14:30      A GENTLE MAN IS A HEALER OF THE HEART: BUT A HEART THAT IS EASILY CORRUPTED IS A CORRUPTION OF THE BONES.

Proverbs 15:15      THE EYES OF THE WICKED ARE ALWAYS LOOKING FOR EVIL THINGS; BUT THE GOOD ARE ALWAYS QUIET.

Proverbs 17:22      A GLAD HEART PROMOTES HEALTH; BUT THE BONES OF A SORROWFUL MAN DRY UP.

Proverbs 23:17-18      LET NOT YOUR HEART ENVY SINNERS: BUT BE YOU IN THE FEAR OF JESUS ALL THE DAY.
    FOR IF YOU SHOULD KEEP THESE THINGS, YOU SHALL HAVE POSTERITY; AND YOUR HOPE SHALL NOT BE REMOVED.

Sirach 18:25      WHEN YOU HAVE ENOUGH, REMEMBER THE TIME OF HUNGER: AND WHEN YOU ARE RICH, THINK UPON POVERTY AND NEED.

Luke 12:16-21      AND HE TOLD THEM A PARABLE, SAYING, "THE LAND OF A RICH PERSON WAS VERY PRODUCTIVE.
    "AND HE BEGAN REASONING TO HIMSELF, SAYING, 'WHAT SHALL I DO, SINCE I HAVE NO PLACE TO STORE MY CROPS?'
    THEN HE SAID, 'THIS IS WHAT I WILL DO: I WILL TEAR DOWN MY BARNS AND BUILD LARGER ONES, AND THERE I WILL STORE ALL MY GRAIN AND MY GOODS.
    'AND I WILL SAY TO MY SOUL, "SOUL, YOU HAVE MANY GOODS LAID UP FOR MANY YEARS; TAKE YOUR EASE, EAT, DRINK AND BE MERRY."'
    BUT THEOS (The Alpha & Omega) SAID TO HIM, 'YOU FOOL! THIS NIGHT YOUR SOUL IS REQUIRED OF YOU; AND WHO WILL OWN WHAT YOU HAVE PREPARED?'
    SO IS THE MAN WHO STORES UP TREASURE FOR HIMSELF, AND IS NOT RICH TOWARD THEOS."

1 Timothy 6:6      BUT GODLINESS IS A MEANS OF GREAT GAIN WHEN ACCOMPANIED BY CONTENTMENT.

Hebrews 13:5      Make sure that YOUR CHARACTER IS FREE FROM THE LOVE OF MONEY, BEING CONTENT WITH WHAT YOU HAVE; FOR HE HIMSELF HAS SAID, "I WILL NEVER DESERT YOU, NOR WILL I EVER FORSAKE YOU,"
