Make not provision for thyself (keep thyself poor)(Romans 13:14). Blessed are the poor in spirit as theirs is the kingdom of God.
Romans 12:1, a living sacrifice is complete…all of our life. Being acceptable to God…there’s much in this life that we cannot afford. We don’t want to miss out on the salvation - an eternal life with God.
Mark 4:22, keep short accounts with God. Don’t try to hide anything from God - from God’s servants, from God’s people. We can depend on God to purge us.
James 4:14 / Galatians 5:19-21 and 22-23, fruit of the spirit. We don’t want to keep ourselves poor in the fruit of the spirit.
