Seven things worth more than money

According to Proverbs, there are seven things worth more than money:

  1. 1. Righteousness.

Wealth is worthless in the day of wrath,
but righteousness delivers from death. Prov 11:4 (NIV)

2. Kindness

A kindhearted woman gains respect,
but ruthless men gain only wealth. Prov 11:16 (NIV)

3. Peacefulness

Better a dry crust with peace and quiet
than a house full of feasting, with strife.
Prov 17:1 (NIV)

4. Wisdom

Of what use is money in the hand of a fool,
since he has no desire to get wisdom? Prov 17:16 (NIV)

5. Integrity

A fortune made by a lying tongue
is a fleeting vapor and a deadly snare. Prov 21:6 (NIV)

6. A good marriage

Houses and wealth are inherited from parents,
but a prudent wife is from the LORD. Prov 19:14 (NIV)

7. A good name

A good name is more desirable than great riches;
to be esteemed is better than silver or gold
. Prov 22:1 (NIV)
