A simple lifestyle for success

The lifestyle of the saved is a very simple lifestyle, without the excesses that are seen on in the general society because of pride. Mostly what causes an individual to burn money at a very high rate is egged on by pride. Many bankruptcies that happen are not so much because of financial mismanagement, but more so caused by the desire to show off and to obtain more material possess. Accept the fact that the main aim of life is not to acquire every possible material possession available for purchase. The saying that the one who finishes with the most toys wins, is often a false concept, in life they are mostly losers.   

Proverbs16:18 Pride [goeth] before destruction, and an haughty spirit before a fall.  

Luke12:15 And he said unto them, Take heed, and beware of covetousness: for a man's life consisteth not in the abundance of the things which he possesseth.  

Matthew26:14 Then one of the twelve, called Judas Iscariot, went unto the chief priests,  

 26:15 And said [unto them], What will ye give me, and I will deliver him unto you? And they covenanted with him for thirty pieces of silver.  26:16 And from that time he sought opportunity to betray him.

Joshua7:18 And he brought his household man by man; and Achan, the son of Carmi, the son of Zabdi, the son of Zerah, of the tribe of Judah, was taken.  7:19 And Joshua said unto Achan, My son, give, I pray thee, glory to the LORD God of Israel, and make confession unto him; and tell me now what thou hast done; hide [it] not from me.  

7:20 And Achan answered Joshua, and said, Indeed I have sinned against the LORD God of Israel, and thus and thus have I done:  

7:21 When I saw among the spoils a goodly Babylonish garment, and two hundred shekels of silver, and a wedge of gold of fifty shekels weight, then I coveted them, and took them; and, behold, they [are] hid in the earth in the midst of my tent, and the silver under it.
