Pray that God will remove greed among the leaders of Nigeria so that they can guide the people well in all things.
1 Timothy 6:10
For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evils. It is through this craving that some have wandered away from the faith and pierced themselves with many pangs.
A greedy man stirs up strife, but the one who trusts in the Lord will be enriched.
And he said to them, “Take care, and be on your guard against all covetousness, for one’s life does not consist in the abundance of his possessions.”
1 Timothy 6:9
But those who desire to be rich fall into temptation, into a snare, into many senseless and harmful desires that plunge people into ruin and destruction.
Keep your life free from love of money, and be content with what you have, for he has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.”
Whoever is greedy for unjust gain troubles his own household, but he who hates bribes will live.
“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.
He who loves money will not be satisfied with money, nor he who loves wealth with his income; this also is vanity.
One gives freely, yet grows all the richer; another withholds what he should give, and only suffers want.
1 John 2:16
For all that is in the world—the desires of the flesh and the desires of the eyes and pride of life—is not from the Father but is from the world.
1 Corinthians 6:9-11
Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor men who practice homosexuality, nor thieves, nor the greedy, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God. And such were some of you. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God.
