2 Corinthians 12:9-9
9) He has said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness." Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my weaknesses, that the power of Christ may rest on me.
5) Be free from the love of money, content with such things as you have, for he has said, "I will in no way leave you, neither will I in any way forsake you."
11) He said, "A certain man had two sons.
12) The younger of them said to his father, ‘Father, give me my share of your property.‘ He divided his living to them.
13) Not many days after, the younger son gathered all of this together and took his journey into a far country. There he wasted his property with riotous living.
14) When he had spent all of it, there arose a severe famine in that country, and he began to be in need.
15) He went and joined himself to one of the citizens of that country, and he sent him into his fields to feed pigs.
16) He wanted to fill his belly with the husks that the pigs ate, but no one gave him any.
17) But when he came to himself he said, ‘How many hired servants of my father‘s have bread enough to spare, and I‘m dying with hunger!
18) I will get up and go to my father, and will tell him, "Father, I have sinned against heaven, and in your sight.
19) I am no more worthy to be called your son. Make me as one of your hired servants."‘
20) He arose, and came to his father. But while he was still far off, his father saw him, and was moved with compassion, and ran, and fell on his neck, and kissed him.
21) The son said to him, ‘Father, I have sinned against heaven, and in your sight. I am no more worthy to be called your son.‘
22) But the father said to his servants, ‘Bring out the best robe, and put it on him. Put a ring on his hand, and shoes on his feet.
23) Bring the fattened calf, kill it, and let us eat, and celebrate;
24) for this, my son, was dead, and is alive again. He was lost, and is found.‘ They began to be merry.
25) Now his elder son was in the field. As he came and drew near to the house, he heard music and dancing.
26) He called one of the servants to him, and asked what was going on.
27) He said to him, ‘Your brother has come, and your father has killed the fattened calf, because he has received him safe and sound.‘
28) But he was angry, and would not go in. Therefore his father came out, and begged him.
29) But he answered his father, ‘Behold, these many years I served you, and I never disobeyed a commandment of yours, and you never gave me a goat, that I might celebrate with my friends.
30) But when this, your son, came, who has devoured your living with prostitutes, you killed the fattened calf for him.‘
31) He said to him, ‘Son, you are always with me, and all that is mine is yours.
32) But it was appropriate to celebrate and be glad, for this, your brother, was dead, and is alive again. He was lost, and is found.‘"
1 Timothy 6:9-9
9) But those who are determined to be rich fall into a temptation and a snare and many foolish and harmful lusts, such as drown men in ruin and destruction.
