Bible verses you need to know...
Do not work for the food that perishes, but for the food that endures to eternal life, which the Son of Man will give to you. For on Him God the Father has set His seal.”
1 Peter 4:10
Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.
And you shall remember the Lord your God, for it is He who gives you power to get wealth...
Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths
Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things. The things which you learned and received and heard and saw in me, these do, and the God of peace will be with you.

For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.’

Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said, “Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.
1 Timothy 6:10, 17-19
For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil. Some people, eager for money, have wandered from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs.
17-19 Command those who are rich in this present world not to be arrogant nor to put their hope in wealth, which is so uncertain, but to put their hope in God, who richly provides us with everything for our enjoyment. Command them to do good, to be rich in good deeds, and to be generous and willing to share. In this way they will lay up treasure for themselves as a firm foundation for the coming age, so that they may take hold of the life that is truly life.
I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go;
I will guide you with My eye.
17 And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him
23 Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters,
Lazy hands make for poverty, but diligent hands bring wealth
If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you.
The LORD will open the heavens, the storehouse of His bounty, to send rain on your land in season and to bless all the work of your hands. You will lend to many nations but will borrow from none.
There are SO many more verses that I could post, but this is a start. Always get into the Word for yourself and allow Holy Spirit to guide you and show you new and wonderful things you did not know!
