I get asked the question from folks that attend church with me or other churches about God and money. How does He want us to handle it? Below you will find a few of the many verses in scripture that address money and how to manage it, give it and not borrow it.
Proverbs 22:7 “The rich rules over the poor, and the borrower is the slave of the lender.”
2 Corinthians 9:7 “Each man should give what he has decided in his heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.”
Proverbs 3:27 “Do not withhold good from those to whom it is due, when it is in your power to do it.”
Matthew 6:21 “For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.”
Proverbs 13:11 “Dishonest money dwindles away, but whoever gathers money little by little makes it grow.”
Proverbs 14:23 “All hard work brings a profit, but mere talk leads only to poverty.”
Proverbs 14:29 “He who is impulsive exalts folly”
Proverbs 21:5 “The plans of the diligent lead to profit as surely as haste leads to poverty.”
Proverbs 1:5 “A wise man will hear and increase learning, and a man of understanding will attain wise counsel.”
This list is not all inclusive as there are over 2000 verses in the Bible that address money. Handling money God’s way is the most effective way to live your life and handle money for you life.
