What Does The Bible Say About Money

We cannot deny that money is one of the most important things to have on earth. As we look at what the Bible says about money, we can learn how to manage this important earthly possession. In this modern age, there is hardly anything that you can get without money. Our houses cost money, our cars, our food, our clothes and so on. 

The Bible not only instructs us on how to use money, but it also teaches us about its evils.

Money can easily begin to rule your life, because money can get you almost anything in this world. The Bible says we cannot serve God and money (Matthew 6:24) and so we must learn how to serve God and let money serve us. When we properly manage our money, it will not only help us in our earthly lives, but it will also help us to fulfill our divine duties.

Let us look at some scriptures that talk about ‘what the Bible says about money’, and how we can manage it better.

Matthew 19:21-26 Jesus answered, “If you want to be perfect, go, sell your possessions and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me.”

Matthew 19:21-26 Jesus answered, “If you want to be perfect, go, sell your possessions and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me.”

Proverbs 23:4-5 Do not wear yourself out to get rich;  do not trust your own cleverness. Cast but a glance at riches, and they are gone, for they will surely sprout wings and fly off to the sky like an eagle.

Proverbs 11:4 Wealth is worthless in the day of wrath,  but righteousness delivers from death.

Ecclesiastes 5:10 Whoever loves money never has enough; whoever loves wealth is never satisfied with their income.This too is meaningless.

Psalm 62:10 ..if riches increase, do not set your heart on them.

Matthew 6:19-21 “Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal, but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also”

Matthew 13:44–46 The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field, which a man found and covered up. Then in his joy he goes and sells all that he has and buys that field.

“Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant in search of fine pearls, who, on finding one pearl of great value, went and sold all that he had and bought it.”

Luke 14:13–14 No servant can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and money.” The Pharisees, who were lovers of money, heard all these things, and they ridiculed him.
Hebrews 13:5 Keep your life free from love of money, and be content with what you have, for he has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.”

“Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant in search of fine pearls, who, on finding one pearl of great value, went and sold all that he had and bought it.”

Revelation 3:17 For you say, I am rich, I have prospered, and I need nothing, not realizing that you are wretched, pitiable, poor, blind, and naked.

Conclusion

As we live, let us never allow money to dictate how we live our lives. It is said that the number one cause of divorce is money related. This is very sad, because we place more value on money than on our families. Let us not allow this to happen. We should desire and use money in the way that will advance God’s love to as many people as possible.

Money should serve man, and not man serve money. As we go, let us study the Biblical principle of money, and let’s live a life free of the love of money. Be blessed!
