"For whoever desires above all to serve his own life will lose it, but whoever is willing to lose his life for My sake will find it."

Matthew 16:25

"Where are the princes of this world,  and those who lorded it over the creatures of the earth?  Those who made sport of the birds of the air, and hoarded up riches in which they trust, and for whom there is no limit to their greed, those who schemed to get wealth, and were always anxious about their possessions.

Baruch 3:16-19

Matthew 10:16
