1 Samuel 26:23
The lord gives his own reward for doing good and for being loyal, and I refused to kill you even when the lord placed you in my power, for you are the lord’s anointed one.
“If they listen and obey God, they will be blessed with prosperity throughout their lives. All their years will be pleasant.
They are like trees planted along the riverbank, bearing fruit each season. Their leaves never wither, and they prosper in all they do.

You have endowed him with eternal blessings and given him the joy of your presence.
Psalm 34:9, 10
Fear the lord, you his godly people, for those who fear him will have all they need. 10Even strong young lions sometimes go hungry, but those who trust in the lord will lack no good thing.
But give great joy to those who came to my defense. Let them continually say, “Great is the lord, who delights in blessing his servant with peace!”
Psalm 112: 1, 3
Praise the lord! How joyful are those who fear the lord and delight in obeying his commands. 3They themselves will be wealthy, and their good deeds will last forever.
My child, never forget the things I have taught you. Store my commands in your heart. 2 If you do this, you will live many years, and your life will be satisfying.
Proverbs 3:9, 10
Honor the lord with your wealth and with the best part of everything you produce. 10Then he will fill your barns with grain, and your vats will overflow with good wine.
I have riches and honor, as well as enduring wealth and justice.
Proverbs 8:20, 21
I walk in righteousness, in paths of justice. 21 Those who love me inherit wealth. I will fill their treasuries.

“O storm-battered city, troubled and desolate! I will rebuild you with precious jewels and make your foundations from lapis lazuli. 12 I will make your towers of sparkling rubies, your gates of shining gems, and your walls of precious stones. 13 I will teach all your children, and they will enjoy great peace.
For I know the plans I have for you,” says the lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.
Bring all the tithes into the storehouse so there will be enough food in my Temple. If you do,” says the lord of Heaven’s Armies, “I will open the windows of heaven for you. I will pour out a blessing so great you won’t have enough room to take it in! Try it! Put me to the test!
Give, and you will receive. Your gift will return to you in full—pressed down, shaken together to make room for more, running over, and poured into your lap. The amount you give will determine the amount you get back.”
The thief’s purpose is to steal and kill and destroy. My purpose is to give them a rich and satisfying life.
John 16:23, 24
At that time you won’t need to ask me for anything. I tell you the truth, you will ask the Father directly, and he will grant your request because you use my name. 24You haven’t done this before. Ask, using my name, and you will receive, and you will have abundant joy.
2 Corinthians 8:9
You know the generous grace of our Lord Jesus Christ. Though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, so that by his poverty he could make you rich.
2 Corinthians 9:6-11
Remember this—a farmer who plants only a few seeds will get a small crop. But the one who plants generously will get a generous crop. 7You must each decide in your heart how much to give. And don’t give reluctantly or in response to pressure. “For God loves a person who gives cheerfully.” 8And God will generously provide all you need. Then you will always have everything you need and plenty left over to share with others. 9As the Scriptures say, “They share freely and give generously to the poor. Their good deeds will be remembered forever.” 10For God is the one who provides seed for the farmer and then bread to eat. In the same way, he will provide and increase your resources and then produce a great harvest of generosity in you. 11Yes, you will be enriched in every way so that you can always be generous. And when we take your gifts to those who need them, they will thank God.
But Christ has rescued us from the curse pronounced by the law. When he was hung on the cross, he took upon himself the curse for our wrongdoing. For it is written in the Scriptures, “Cursed is everyone who is hung on a tree.”
And I am certain that God, who began the good work within you, will continue his work until it is finally finished on the day when Christ Jesus returns.
And this same God who takes care of me will supply all your needs from his glorious riches, which have been given to us in Christ Jesus.
1 Timothy 6:17, 18
Teach those who are rich in this world not to be proud and not to trust in their money, which is so unreliable. Their trust should be in God, who richly gives us all we need for our enjoyment. 18Tell them to use their money to do good. They should be rich in good works and generous to those in need, always being ready to share with others.
1 John 5:14, 15
And we are confident that he hears us whenever we ask for anything that pleases him. 15 And since we know he hears us when we make our requests, we also know that he will give us what we ask for.
3 John 1:2
Dear friend, I hope all is well with you and that you are as healthy in body as you are strong in spirit.
