Luke 18:18-25
18)And a certain ruler asked him, saying, Good Master, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?
19)And Jesus said unto him, Why callest thou me good? none is good, save one, that is, God.
20)Thou knowest the commandments, Do not commit adultery, Do not kill, Do not steal, Do not bear false witness, Honour thy father and thy mother.
21)And he said, All these have I kept from my youth up.
22)Now when Jesus heard these things, he said unto him, Yet lackest thou one thing: sell all that thou hast, and distribute unto the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come, follow me.
23)And when he heard this, he was very sorrowful: for he was very rich.
24)And when Jesus saw that he was very sorrowful, he said, How hardly shall they that have riches enter into the kingdom of God!
25)For it is easier for a camel to go through a needle's eye, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.

James 1:22-27
22)But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves.
23)For if any be a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass:
24)For he beholdeth himself, and goeth his way, and straightway forgetteth what manner of man he was.
25)But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed.
26)If any man among you seem to be religious, and bridleth not his tongue, but deceiveth his own heart, this man's religion is vain.
27)Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world.

33)Sell that ye have, and give alms; provide yourselves bags which wax not old, a treasure in the heavens that faileth not, where no thief approacheth, neither moth corrupteth.
34)For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.

1 John 3:6,8-21
6)Whosoever abideth in him sinneth not: whosoever sinneth hath not seen him, neither known him.
8)He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.
9)Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God.
10)In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil: whosoever doeth not righteousness is not of God, neither he that loveth not his brother.
11)For this is the message that ye heard from the beginning, that we should love one another.
12)Not as Cain, who was of that wicked one, and slew his brother. And wherefore slew he him? Because his own works were evil, and his brother's righteous.
13)Marvel not, my brethren, if the world hate you.
14)We know that we have passed from death unto life, because we love the brethren. He that loveth not his brother abideth in death.
15)Whosoever hateth his brother is a murderer: and ye know that no murderer hath eternal life abiding in him.
16)Hereby perceive we the love of God, because he laid down his life for us: and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren.
17)But whoso hath this world's good, and seeth his brother have need, and shutteth up his bowels of compassion from him, how dwelleth the love of God in him?
18)My little children, let us not love in word, neither in tongue; but in deed and in truth.
19)And hereby we know that we are of the truth, and shall assure our hearts before him.
20)For if our heart condemn us, God is greater than our heart, and knoweth all things.
21)Beloved, if our heart condemn us not, then have we confidence toward God.

James 2:1-9
1)My brethren, have not the faith of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Lord of glory, with respect of persons.
2)For if there come unto your assembly a man with a gold ring, in goodly apparel, and there come in also a poor man in vile raiment;
3)And ye have respect to him that weareth the gay clothing, and say unto him, Sit thou here in a good place; and say to the poor, Stand thou there, or sit here under my footstool:
4)Are ye not then partial in yourselves, and are become judges of evil thoughts?
5)Hearken, my beloved brethren, Hath not God chosen the poor of this world rich in faith, and heirs of the kingdom which he hath promised to them that love him?
6)But ye have despised the poor. Do not rich men oppress you, and draw you before the judgment seats?
7)Do not they blaspheme that worthy name by the which ye are called?
8)If ye fulfil the royal law according to the scripture, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself, ye do well:
9)But if ye have respect to persons, ye commit sin, and are convinced of the law as transgressors.
