The prudent see danger and take refuge, but the simple keep going and suffer for it.
Plans fail for lack of counsel, but with many advisers they succeed.
1 Timothy 6:10
For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil. Some people, eager for money, have wandered from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs.
He who loves pleasure will become poor; whoever loves wine and oil [luxury some translations] will never be rich.
In the house of the wise are stores of choice food and oil, but a foolish man devours all he has.
The rich rule over the poor, and the borrower is servant to the lender.
Go to the ant, you sluggard! Consider her ways and be wise…Which, having no captain, overseer or ruler…Provides her supplies in the summer, and gathers her food in the harvest…
For which of you, intending to build a tower, does not sit down first and count the cost…
For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.
A false balance is an abomination to the Lord, but a just weight is His delight.
The plans of the diligent lead surely to plenty, but those of everyone who is hasty, surely to poverty.
The blessings of the Lord makes one rich, and He adds no sorrow with it.
Prepare your outside work, make it fit for yourself in the field; and afterward build your house.
Do not withhold good from those to whom it is due, when it is in the power of your hand to do so.
The earth is the Lord’s and the fullness thereof…
He who increases his wealth by exorbitant interest amasses it for another, who will be kind to the poor.
Better one handful with tranquility than two handfuls with toil and chasing after the wind.
Cast your bread upon the waters, for after many days you will find it again. Give portions to seven, yes to eight, for you do not know what disaster may come upon the land.
