Proverbs 31:30-31 ->Again, though, do not praise your self or seek out praise, but let praise find you.
Revelation 9:20-21 ->Hardened people just flat out refuse to change.
1 Timothy 6:18-19 ->Don't allow earthly wealth to pull you aside from that which is best.
Quote: "Do not make riches, but usefulness, your first aim; and let your chief pride be that your daily occupation is in the line of progress and development; that your work, in whatever capacity it may be, is useful work, honestly conducted, and as such ennobling to your life." - Andrew Carnegie
Thought #1: Money cannot be your chief aim of life. Take it from people who had it!
Thought #2: Hm, this sounds similar to what Paul said in 1 Timothy 6:17-19 about not enjoying riches but good works & righteousness.
