James 1:9-11 (NASB)
9  But the brother of humble circumstances is to glory in his high position; 10 and the rich man is to glory in his humiliation, because like flowering grass he will pass away. 11 For the sun rises with a scorching wind and withers the grass; and its flower falls off and the beauty of its appearance is destroyed; so too the rich man in the midst of his pursuits will fade away.

Matthew 6:19-21(NASB)
19 “ Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. 20 But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys, and where thieves do not break in or steal; 21 for where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.

Lord, we have all heard Your Son’s words, “Where our heart is, there is our treasure.” Father, forgive us as a nation and as Your church for pursuing greed because we believe it is so important. Father, we recognize that people with much means are used by You to be great givers, we also realize that many time, whether we are rich or poor, we often put our treasure in things of the earth. Cause us Lord to lay up treasure in heaven, where moth and rust do not destroy. In the Name of Your Son, who died that we might see heaven, amen.
