whoever loves wealth is never satisfied with his income.

He bustles about, but only in vain;
he heaps up wealth, not knowing who will get it.

No one can serve two masters.
Either he will hate the one and love the other,
or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other.
You cannot serve both God and Money.
- Matthew 6:24
People who want to get rich fall into temptation

form the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs.

when the splendor of his house increases;
for he will take nothing with him when he dies,
his splendor will not descend with him.

Honor the Lord with your wealth, with the first fruits of all your
crops; then your barns will be filled to overflowing, and
your vats will brim over with new wine.

Do not wear yourself out to get rich; have the wisdom
to show restraint. Cast but a glance at riches, and
they are gone, for they will surely sprout wings
and fly off to the sky like an eagle.

For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.
