BDBD is Eccl. 5:13-15

Wealth; most want it, most believe they don’t have enough, most toil endlessly to obtain it, many fear losing it, and some hoard it to the harm of its owner (13). Scroodge comes to mind when thinking of this kind of person. Yet, what about my actions? How much and to what extent does obtaining wealth affect my feelings, thoughts, and actions?

Jesus taught, “Watch out! Be on your guard against all kinds of greed; a man’s life does not consist in the abundance of his possessions.” (Luke 12:15)

Jesus also said, “What good is it if a man gain’s the whole world, yet forfeits his soul?” God is not impressed with my wealth and my possessions so much so that when I die I won’t take any of them with me (16).
