See also Money; Pride
Wealth or abundance. The Lord counsels the Saints not to seek for worldly riches except to do good. The Saints must not put seeking worldly riches before seeking the kingdom of God, which holds the riches of eternity (
If riches increase, set not your heart upon them,
Riches profit not in the day of wrath,
He that trusteth in his riches shall fall,
A good name is rather to be chosen than great riches,
Wo unto the rich who despise the poor and whose treasure is their god,
2 Ne. 9:30.
The righteous did not set their hearts on riches but shared with all,
The people began to be proud because of riches,
People were distinguished by ranks, according to their riches,
3 Ne. 6:12.
How oft have I called upon you by the riches of eternal life,
The riches of eternity are mine to give,
D&C 67:2 ( D&C 78:18).
