Five Scriptures About a Sensitive Subject
Oh friends, such a sensitive and touchy subject to many, and definitely not one to bring up around the table at family gatherings. Ha! Ha! The Bible teaches us that we are responsible for managing our finances faithfully, and in a way that honors God. A phrase commonly used is that we are to be good stewards of the wealth that God has given into our care. The word “steward” clearly implies that it is God’s money that we are managing and not our own. There are several verses of scripture in the Bible about money. Here’s a few I have chosen to share with YOU!
  1. 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.” Hebrews 13:5
  2. For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evils. It is through this craving that some have wandered away from the faith and pierced themselves with many pangs.” 1 Timothy 6:10
  3. “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 6:19-21
  4. Sell your possessions, and give to the needy. Provide yourselves with moneybags that do not grow old, with a treasure in the heavens that does not fail, where no thief approaches and no moth destroys. For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.” Luke 12:33-34
  5. Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world—the desires of the flesh and the desires of the eyes and pride in possessions—is not from the Father but is from the world. And the world is passing away along with its desires, but whoever does the will of God abides forever.” 1 John 2:15-17
