1 Timothy 6

Serving God does make us very rich, if we are satisfied with what we have. We brought nothing into the world, so we can take nothing out. But, if we have food and clothes, we will be satisfied with that. Those who want to become rich bring temptation to themselves and are caught in a trap. They want many foolish and harmful things that ruin and destroy people. The love of money causes all kinds of evil. Some people have left the faith, becausd they wanted to get more money, but they have caused themselves much sorrow.

But you, child of God, run aways from all these things. Instead, live in teh right way, serve God, have faith, love, patience and gentleness.

Whoo. This is a passage that hits me right where it counts.
