A little that a righteous man hath is better than the riches of many wicked. -- Better is little with the fear of the Lord than great treasure and trouble therewith. -- Godliness with contentment is great gain. Having food and raiment let us be therewith content.
Give me neither poverty nor riches; feed me with food convenient for me: lest I be full, and deny thee, and say, Who is the Lord? or lest I be poor, and steal, and take the name of my God in vain. -- Give us this day our daily bread.
Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment? -- When I sent you without purse, and scrip, and shoes, lacked ye any thing? And they said, Nothing. -- Let your conversation be without covetousness: and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.
