HEART: Fight GREED + Give FREELY

Prov. 21:26 Some people are always greedy for more, but the godly love to give!
Prov. 11:25 Give freely and become more wealthy; be stingy and lose everything. The generous will prosper; those who refresh others will themselves be refreshed.

ACTIONS: Work HARD + Be diligent doing RIGHT

Proverbs 28:19 A hard worker has plenty of food, but a person who chases fantasies ends up in poverty.
Proverbs 24:16 The godly may trip seven times, but they will get up again. But one disaster is enough to overthrow the wicked.
