Matthew 6:
19   “Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal;

2   Then Jesus called a little child to Him, set him in the midst of them,
3   and said, “Assuredly, I say to you, unless you are converted and become as little children, you will by no means enter the kingdom of heaven.
4   Therefore whoever humbles himself as this little child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.
5   Whoever receives one little child like this in My name receives Me.”

John 15:
5   “I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing.

Luke 21:
34   “But take heed to yourselves, lest your hearts be weighed down with carousing, drunkenness, and cares of this life, and that Day [the return of Jesus Christ] come on you unexpectedly.
