Hi Pamela,

Here is “just one”….;-)

Proverbs 23:4-5 ” Labour not to be rich: cease from thine own wisdom. Wilt thou set thine eyes upon that which is not? for riches certainly make themselves wings; they fly away as an eagle toward heaven.”

We know that labor is good when it is done to glorify God. He allows us the ability to make wealth(Deut 8:18). We should not labor for the end purpose of being wealthy, but that the wealth would further God’s Kingdom. Sometimes this nuance for the Christian, myself included, gets lost in collective bargaining.
