The Bible has a lot to say about money. In fact, Jesus talked more about money than He talked about Heaven or Hell. He knew that this was going to be a big issue for us so He clearly told us how to see money in a healthy way. Some have taken his words and skewed them to say that He wants all people to be wealthy. Others have taken another extreme and twisted the Bible to say that money is evil. What the Bible actually teaches on money is a revolutionary concept which will bring freedom and peace to your life and your finances if you’re willing to live it out. Here are the key Biblical principles that the Bible teaches on money:
Money is a good servant but a poor Master. No amount of it will bring contentment.
Yet when I surveyed all that my hands had done and what I had toiled to achieve, everything was meaningless, a chasing after the wind; nothing was gained under the sun. Ecclesiastes 2:11
Your Net Worth has nothing to do with your Self Worth. You have value because God made you and loves you, not because of your socioeconomic status.
Then Jesus said to them, “Watch out! Be on your guard against all kinds of greed; life does not consist in an abundance of possessions.” John 12:15
Keep an Eternal Perspective. “Real wealth” won’t be given until we get to Heaven.
Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moths and vermin destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moths and vermin do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. Matthew 6:19-21
Keep Healthy Priorities. Put God first. He’ll take care of the rest.
Seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Matthew 6:33
