The Bible and Wealth

Where does the Bible speak positively about material wealth? Dan Trabue has a list of passages, and finds them few and far between.

Thanks for the link. I've posted over to the side a link to all four of my posts (four, so far - more to come) on The Bible and Economics. I hope to, over time, have a fairly comprehensive list of biblical passages on economic matters.

At some point several years ago, it was pointed out to me how very much the Bible deals with matters of economics/poverty/wealth and how very consistently it is unflattering or convicting of wealth. As I've been reading the Bible since then, it's jumped out to me how true that is.

Anyone here ever see an extensive listing of biblical economic quotes/links?

If one exists, that might save me some work...
