Jesus said: "Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they labour not, neither do they spin. But I say to you, that not even Solomon in all his glory was arrayed as one of these."
The theme here (and there are all kinds of wonderful sub themes) is about heartfelt charity from a complete trust in God and NO greed. Also, lots of hard work. Remember the first commandment in the Bible, in Genesis. After the fall of man, the original gifts of God of eternity without death and all preternatural goodness and all fruitfulness of progeny and everything for man's need given him without dint of His own efforts were replaced by Gn. 3:19 In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread till thou return to the earth, out of which thou wast taken: for dust thou art, and into dust thou shalt return.
The fruitfulness of progeny remains, but only in honest hard work is it moral in God's sight to support ourselves. The original gifts of God of eternity without death and all preternatural goodness are now obtainable only by the redemption of the Son of God Jesus Christ by His Kenosis and its application to all children too young to be held accountable and all others upon their confession of faith in the Holy Trinity, the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, from the heart.
Gn:1:27 And God created man to his own image: to the image of God he created him: male and female he created them.
28 And God blessed them, saying: Increase and multiply, and fill the earth, and subdue it, and rule over the fishes of the sea, and the fowls of the air, and all living creatures that move upon the earth.
Gn:2:24 Wherefore a man shall leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they shall be two in one flesh.
Parousia of Jesus Christ Our Lord: how to tell false prophets from true
Tanakh (Taurat), the Torah of Moses, the Old Testament in the Christian Bible
Deuteronomy Chapter 13:1-5
If a prophet or a dreamer of dreams arises among you and gives you a sign or a wonder, and the sign or the wonder comes true, concerning which he spoke to you, saying, ‘Let us go after other gods (whom you have not known) and let us serve them,’ you shall not listen to the words of that prophet or that dreamer of dreams; for the LORD your God is testing you to find out if you love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul. You shall follow the LORD your God and fear Him; and you shall keep His commandments, listen to His voice, serve Him, and cling to Him. But that prophet or that dreamer of dreams shall be put to death, because he has counseled rebellion against the LORD your God who brought you from the land of Egypt and redeemed you from the house of slavery, to seduce you from the way in which the LORD your God commanded you to walk. So you shall purge the evil from among you.
This is modified by the Lord Jesus Christ in the New Testament per His Sermon on the Mount where the violence of the Old Testament is done away with, but the separation from evil and false prophets still remains. Money grubbers are one of the chief forms of false prophets warned of in the Old and New Testaments and that warning is still absolute and in place and will remain in place until the complete consummation of all things and the return of Our Lord Jesus Christ and His eternal judgement of all men raised from the dead by His command and power to be judged by Him. The word "money" occurs in the Old Testament over 150 times and a very real predilection from most ancient times is the obsession of people with it. The word "money" occurs in the New Testament less than thirty times and most always with the warnings not to be concerned with it and use it only when you do use it for the good and charitable purposes that Our Lord Jesus Christ commands it be put to use for. Never are we commended if we strive after money. Honest work is allowed and that only - a fair days wage for a fair days labor.
The New Testament, the Covenant of God with men, in Our Lord Jesus Christ alone, the only Mediator between God and men in the flesh.
Mat 24:24 For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall show great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.THE FALSE PROPHET
Mark 13:22 For false Christs and false prophets shall rise, and shall show signs and wonders, to seduce, if it were possible, even the elect.
12 *All things, therefore, whatsoever you would that men should do to you, do you also to them. For this is the law and the prophets.
13 *Enter ye in at the narrow gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way that leadeth to destruction, and many there are who enter by it.
14 How narrow is the gate, and strait is the way, which leadeth to life: and few there are who find it!
15 Beware of false prophets, who come to you in the clothing of sheep, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves.
16 By their fruits you shall know them. Do men gather grapes off thorns, or figs off thistles?
17 Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit, and the bad tree bringeth forth bad fruit.
18 A good tree cannot yield bad fruit, neither can an bad tree yield good fruit.
19 *Every tree that yieldeth not forth good fruit, shall be cut down, and shall be cast into the fire.
20 Wherefore by their fruits you shall know them.
21 *Not every one that saith to me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven: but he that doth the will of my Father, who is in heaven, he shall enter into the kingdom of heaven.
22 Many will say to me in that day: Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name, *and cast out devils in thy name, and done many wonderful works in thy name?
23 And then will I profess unto them: I never knew you: *depart from me, you that work iniquity.
24 *Every one, therefore, that heareth these my words, and doth them, shall be likened to a wise man, who built his house upon a rock.

20 And being asked by the Pharisees, when the kingdom of God should come? he, answering them, said: The kingdom of God cometh not with observation:
21 Neither shall they say: Behold here, or behold there: for lo, the kingdom of God is within you.
22 And he said to his disciples: The days will come, when you shall desire to see one day of the Son of man, and you shall not see it.
23 *And they will say to you: Lo here, and lo there. Go ye not after, nor follow them:
24 For as the lightening that lighteneth from under heaven, shineth unto the parts that are under heaven, so shall the Son of man be in his day.
25 But first he must suffer many things, and be rejected by this generation.
26 *And as it was in the days of Noe, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man.
27 They did eat and drink, they married wives, and were given in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark: and the flood came, and destroyed them all.28 *Likewise, as it was in the days of Lot: They did eat and drink, they bought and sold, they planted and built:29 And in the day that Lot went out of Sodom, it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all:30 Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man shall be revealed.
THE FALSE PROPHET AND ALL THE FALSE PROPHETS ARE NOT TO BE HEEDED NOR GONE INTO - HAVE ABSOLUTELY NOTHING TO DO WITH THEM AT ALL IN ANYTHING.
PREACHERS AND TEACHERS OF THE TRUE GOSPEL, WHAT THEY ARE TO DO - IF THE BELOW IS NOT DONE BY ANYONE THEN THEY ARE FALSE PROPHETS
The absolutely evil idolatry of mammon totally and absolutely eternally condemned to hell by Our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, but then codified into their own Satanic religion by the Deicide Perifidous Jews in the Shulchan Aruch.
