Matthew 6(KJV) verse 33 " But seek ye first kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you." 1 Timothy 6(KJV) verse 17 "Charge them that are rich in this world, that they be not highminded, nor trust in uncertain riches, but in living God, who giveth us richly all things to enjoy;" verse18 "That they do good, that they be rich in good works, ready to distribute, willing to communicate;" verse 19 "Laying up in store for themselves a good foundation against time to come, that they may lay hold on eternal life."
