Love leaves legacy. How you treated other people, not your wealth or accomplishments, is the most enduring impact you can leave on earth.
- Rick Warren
Hold material goods and wealth on a flat palm and not in a clenched fist.
- Alistair Begg
When wealth is lost, nothing is lost; when health is lost, something is lost; when character is lost, all is lost.
- Billy Graham
Lest riches should be accounted evil in themselves, God sometimes gives them to the righteous; and lest they should be considered as the chief good, he frequently bestows them on the wicked. But they are more generally the portion of his enemies than his friends.
- William Secker
Riches are long in getting with much pains, hard in keeping with much care, quick in losing with more sorrow.
- Thomas Fuller
A defense in the Inquisition is of little use to the prisoner, for a suspicion only is deemed sufficient cause of condemnation, and the greater his wealth the greater his danger.
- John Foxe
Riches and the things that are necessary in life are not evil in themselves. And all of us face cares and troubles in this life. The sin comes in the time and energy we spend in pursuing these things, at the expense of neglecting Christ.
- David Wilkerson
Better to live in a hovel with a grain of grace, than to live in a palace without it; for what would the palace avail you in a thousand years?
- William Tiptaft
An accession of wealth is a dangerous predicament for a man. At first he is stunned if the accession be sudden, and is very humble and very grateful. Then he begins to speak a little louder, people think him more sensible, and soon he thinks himself so.
- Richard Cecil
It is the heart that makes a man rich. He is rich or poor according to what he is, not according to what he has.
- Henry Ward Beecher
Since much wealth too often proves a snare and an encumbrance in the Christian's race, let him lighten the weight by 'dispersing abroad and giving to the poor'; whereby he will both soften the pilgrimage of his fellow travelers, and speed his own way the faster.

Material wealth is either a window through which we see God or a mirror in which we see ourselves.

What wealth have you, if you have not got Christ? If Christ is the object before you, will all the things that fret you take Christ from you? All the things you long for, will they give you more of Christ?
- G.V. Wigram
At times it seems we require more grace to lose our wealth than to lose our life!
- Watchman Nee
He is a poor man who can only measure his wealth in dollars.
- Woodrow Kroll
Great abundance of riches cannot be gathered and kept by any man without sin. Great eagerness in the pursuit of wealth, pleasure, or honor, cannot exist without sin.
- Desiderius Erasmus
When Jesus warns us not to store up treasures on earth, it's not just because wealth might be lost; it's because wealth will always be lost. Either it leaves us while we live, or we leave it when we die. No exceptions....Realizing its value is temporary should radically affect our investment strategy.... According to Jesus, storing up earthly treasures isn't simply wrong. It's just plain stupid.
- Randy Alcorn
Many of those who once were so passionately in love with Christ now run about pursuing their own interests. They're burdened down with stress and problems, chasing after riches and the things of this world.
- David Wilkerson
No one is so miserable as the poor person who maintains the appearance of wealth.
- Charles Spurgeon
The use of means ought not to lessen our faith in God, and our faith in God ought not to hinder our using whatever means He has given us for the accomplishment of His own purposes.
- Hudson Taylor
