Better is a little with the fear of the Lord than great treasure and trouble with it. (Proverbs 15:16 ESV)
I pray that God will give me just enough so that I will never be tempted to gain by sinful measures. If it doesn't come from Him it is not a blessing.
I have learned throughout my lifetime that God will supply for me. I may wonder how it will happen and I often wonder how much longer it will take, but He has never failed me. 
He gives me just as much as I need.
Because He has done this time and again, I have learned to trust and believe that He will continue to do so. I respect His provision. I respect when It doesn't come. He is so good, all the time.
I have never owned great treasure, at least by worldly standards. But I have seen greed, envy, covetness, jealousy, desire, and stinginess. I don't like those things. And if God gives me more than I need, could I evolve into someone that produces those bad fruits?
Remove far from me falsehood and lying; give me neither poverty nor riches; feed me with the food that is needful for me, lest I be full and deny you and say, “Who is the Lord ?” or lest I be poor and steal and profane the name of my God. (Proverbs 30:8, 9 ESV)
Give me this day my DAILY BREAD.
