  • Genesis 3:17-19
    Then to Adam He said, "Because you have heeded the voice of your wife, and have eaten from the tree of which I commanded you, saying, "You shall not eat of it":
    "Cursed is the ground for your sake;
    In toil you shall eat of it
    All the days of your life.

    Both thorns and thistles it shall bring forth for you,
    And you shall eat the herb of the field.

    In the sweat of your face you shall eat bread
    Till you return to the ground,
    For out of it you were taken;
    For dust you are,
    And to dust you shall return."
     
  • Exodus 20:17

  • Proverbs 24:30-34
    I went by the field of the lazy man,
    And by the vineyard of the man devoid of understanding;
    And there it was, all overgrown with thorns;
    Its surface was covered with nettles;
    Its stone wall was broken down.
    When I saw it, I considered it well;
    I looked on it and received instruction:
    A little sleep, a little slumber,
    A little folding of the hands to rest;
    So shall your poverty come like a prowler,
    And your need like an armed man.
     
  • Acts 20:35
    I have shown you in every way, by laboring like this, that you must support the weak. And remember the words of the Lord Jesus, that He said, ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’”
     
  • 1 Timothy 6:7-10
    For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out. And having food and clothing, with these we shall be content. But those who desire to be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and harmful lusts which drown men in destruction and perdition. For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil, for which some have strayed from the faith in their greediness, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.
     
  • 1 John 2:15
    Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him.

  • Proverbs 6:6-8
    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.

     
  • Proverbs 22:29
    Do you see a man who excels in his work?
    He will stand before kings;
    He will not stand before unknown men.

     
  • Proverbs 30:7-9
    Two things I request of You
    (Deprive me not before I die):
    Remove falsehood and lies far from me;
    Give me neither poverty nor riches—
    Feed me with the food allotted to me;
    Lest I be full and deny You,
    And say, “Who is the LORD?”
    Or lest I be poor and steal,
    And profane the name of my God.

     
  • Ecclesiastes 9:10
    Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with your might; for there is no work or device or knowledge or wisdom in the grave where you are going.
     
  • Isaiah 56:10-12
    His watchmen are blind,
    They are all ignorant;
    They are all dumb dogs,
    They cannot bark;
    Sleeping, lying down, loving to slumber.
    Yes, they are greedy dogs
    Which never have enough.
    And they are shepherds
    Who cannot understand;
    They all look to their own way,
    Every one for his own gain,
    From his own territory.
    " Come," one says, "I will bring wine,
    And we will fill ourselves with intoxicating drink;
    Tomorrow will be as today,
    And much more abundant."
     
  • Matthew 24:45-51
    "Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his master made ruler over his household, to give them food in due season? Blessed is that servant whom his master, when he comes, will find so doing. Assuredly, I say to you that he will make him ruler over all his goods. But if that evil servant says in his heart, "My master is delaying his coming," and begins to beat his fellow servants, and to eat and drink with the drunkards, the master of that servant will come on a day when he is not looking for him and at an hour that he is not aware of, and will cut him in two and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites. There shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
     
  • Matthew 25:14-30
    "For the kingdom of heaven is like a man traveling to a far country, who called his own servants and delivered his goods to them. And to one he gave five talents, to another two, and to another one, to each according to his own ability; and immediately he went on a journey. Then he who had received the five talents went and traded with them, and made another five talents. And likewise he who had received two gained two more also. But he who had received one went and dug in the ground, and hid his lord's money. After a long time the lord of those servants came and settled accounts with them. "So he who had received five talents came and brought five other talents, saying, "Lord, you delivered to me five talents; look, I have gained five more talents besides them." His lord said to him, "Well done, good and faithful servant; you were faithful over a few things, I will make you ruler over many things. Enter into the joy of your lord." He also who had received two talents came and said, "Lord, you delivered to me two talents; look, I have gained two more talents besides them." His lord said to him, "Well done, good and faithful servant; you have been faithful over a few things, I will make you ruler over many things. Enter into the joy of your lord." "Then he who had received the one talent came and said, "Lord, I knew you to be a hard man, reaping where you have not sown, and gathering where you have not scattered seed. And I was afraid, and went and hid your talent in the ground. Look, there you have what is yours." "But his lord answered and said to him, "You wicked and lazy servant, you knew that I reap where I have not sown, and gather where I have not scattered seed. So you ought to have deposited my money with the bankers, and at my coming I would have received back my own with interest. So take the talent from him, and give it to him who has ten talents. "For to everyone who has, more will be given, and he will have abundance; but from him who does not have, even what he has will be taken away. And cast the unprofitable servant into the outer darkness. There will be weeping and gnashing of teeth."
     
  • John 15:5
    "I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing.
     
  • Romans 12:1
    I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service.
     
  • 2 Thessalonians 3:10-13
    For even when we were with you, we commanded you this: If anyone will not work, neither shall he eat. For we hear that there are some who walk among you in a disorderly manner, not working at all, but are busybodies. Now those who are such we command and exhort through our Lord Jesus Christ that they work in quietness and eat their own bread. But as for you, brethren, do not grow weary in doing good.
     
  • Hebrews 13:5
    Let your conduct be without covetousness; be content with such things as you have. For He Himself has said, "I will never leave you nor forsake you."
     
  • Proverbs 14:23
    In all labor there is profit,
    But idle chatterleads only to poverty.

     
  • Ecclesiastes 2:24
    Nothing is better for a man than that he should eat and drink, and that his soul should enjoy good in his labor. This also, I saw, was from the hand of God.
     
  • Ecclesiastes 3:22
    So I perceived that nothing is better than that a man should rejoice in his own works, for that is his heritage. For who can bring him to see what will happen after him?
     
  • Ecclesiastes 4:4-10
    Again, I saw that for all toil and every skillful work a man is envied by his neighbor. This also is vanity and grasping for the wind.
    The fool folds his hands
    And consumes his own flesh.
    Better a handful with quietness
    Than both hands full, together with toil and grasping for the wind. Then I returned, and I saw vanity under the sun:
    There is one alone, without companion:
    He has neither son nor brother.
    Yet there is no end to all his labors,
    Nor is his eye satisfied with riches.
    But he never asks,
    “ For whom do I toil and deprive myself of good?”
    This also is vanity and a grave misfortune. Two are better than one,
    Because they have a good reward for their labor.
    For if they fall, one will lift up his companion.
    But woe to him who is alone when he falls,
    For he has no one to help him up.

     
  • Luke 12:15
    And He said to them, "Take heed and beware of covetousness, for one's life does not consist in the abundance of the things he possesses."
     
  • Romans 13:13
    Let us walk properly, as in the day, not in revelry and drunkenness, not in lewdness and lust, not in strife and envy.
     
  • 1 Corinthians 6:10
    nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God.
     
  • 1 Corinthians 9:24-27
    Do you not know that those who run in a race all run, but one receives the prize? Run in such a way that you may obtain it. And everyone who competes for the prize is temperate in all things. Now they do it to obtain a perishable crown, but we for an imperishable crown. Therefore I run thus: not with uncertainty. Thus I fight: not as one who beats the air. But I discipline my body and bring it into subjection, lest, when I have preached to others, I myself should become disqualified.
     
  • Ephesians 4:28
    Let him who stole steal no longer, but rather let him labor, working with his hands what is good, that he may have something to give him who has need.
     
  • Ephesians 6:5-8
    Bondservants, be obedient to those who are your masters according to the flesh, with fear and trembling, in sincerity of heart, as to Christ; not with eyeservice, as men-pleasers, but as bondservants of Christ, doing the will of God from the heart, with goodwill doing service, as to the Lord, and not to men, knowing that whatever good anyone does, he will receive the same from the Lord, whether he is a slave or free.
     
  • 2 Thessalonians 3:6
    But we command you, brethren, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that you withdraw from every brother who walks disorderly and not according to the tradition which he received from us.

    Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
     
  • James 5:1-6
    Come now, you rich, weep and howl for your miseries that are coming upon you! Your riches are corrupted, and your garments are moth-eaten. Your gold and silver are corroded, and their corrosion will be a witness against you and will eat your flesh like fire. You have heaped up treasure in the last days. Indeed the wages of the laborers who mowed your fields, which you kept back by fraud, cry out; and the cries of the reapers have reached the ears of the Lord of Sabaoth. You have lived on the earth in pleasure and luxury; you have fattened your hearts as in a day of slaughter. You have condemned, you have murdered the just; he does not resist you.
     
  • 1 Peter 4:10
    As each one has received a gift, minister it to one another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God.
