Just a fantastic question, Jean-Claude Jean Louis! Here is just a sampling of verses I liked about "abundance." EC 5:12: The sleep of a labouring man is sweet, whether he eat little or much: but the abundance of the rich will not suffer him to sleep. MT 12:34: O generation of vipers, how can ye, being evil, speak good things? For out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh. MT 13:12: For whosoever hath, to him shall be given, and he shall have more abundance: but whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken away even that he hath. MT 25:29: For unto every one that hath shall be given, and he shall have abundance: but from him that hath not shall be taken away even that which he hath. MR 12:44: For all they did cast in of their abundance; but she of her want did cast in all that she had, even all her living. LU 6:45: A good man out of the good treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is evil: for of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaketh. LU 12:15: And he said unto them, Take heed, and beware of covetousness: for a man's life consisteth not in the abundance of the things which he possesseth. LU 21:4: For all these have of their abundance cast in unto the offerings of God: but she of her penury hath cast in all the living that she had. John 10:10: “The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.” 2CO 12:7: And lest I should be exalted above measure through the abundance of the revelations, there was given to me a thorn in the flesh, the messenger of Satan to buffet me, lest I should be exalted above measure. (KJV)
