1 John 2:15
Do Not Love the World
15Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him.
Lay Up Treasures in Heaven
19"Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rustOr worm; also verse 20 destroy and where thieves break in and steal, 20but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. 21For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.
22"The eye is the lamp of the body. So, if your eye is healthy, your whole body will be full of light, 23but if your eye is bad, your whole body will be full of darkness. If then the light in you is darkness, how great is the darkness!
24"No one can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and money.Greek mammon, a Semitic word for money or possessions
