Words of Wisdom
Like as a lion that is greedy of his prey, and as it were a young lion lurking in secret places. Psalm 17:12
So are the ways of every one that is greedy of gain; which taketh away the life of the owners thereof. Proverbs 1:19
He that is greedy of gain troubleth his own house; but he that hateth gifts shall live. Proverbs 15:27
Yea, they are greedy dogs which can never have enough, and they are shepherds that cannot understand: they all look to their own way, every one for his gain, from his quarter. Isaiah 56:11
Not given to wine, no striker, not greedy of filthy lucre; but patient, not a brawler, not covetous;
One that ruleth well his own house, having his children in subjection with all gravity;
(For if a man know not how to rule his own house, how shall he take care of the church of God?)
Not a novice, lest being lifted up with pride he fall into the condemnation of the devil.
Moreover he must have a good report of them which are without; lest he fall into reproach and the snare of the devil.
Likewise must the deacons be grave, not doubletongued, not given to much wine, not greedy of filthy lucre; 1 Timothy 3:3-8
