What does the bible say about money ?

God Will Always Supply For Those Who Love Him

I don’t know how the local economy of your area, region, or country is but God will always create jobs for those who love Him.

This truth is something we find in Psalm 34:9-10:“Oh, fear the Lord, you His saints! There is no want to those who fear Him.

The young lions lack and suffer hunger; But those who seek the Lord shall not lack any good thing”. (NKJV)

As well as in Matthew 6:31-33: “Therefore do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’

 For after all these things the Gentiles seek. For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things.

 But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.” (NKJV)

Being Rich Is Not Always A Good Thing

If you care about how you look in the eyes of God, and what God thinks when he looks at you, then it will benefit you to know that being rich is not always a good thing.

Why is this? Let’s take a look at what shockingly happened to Christians who were rich a long time ago:

Let’s look at this in Revelation 3:17:

“Because you say, ‘I am rich, have become wealthy, and have need of nothing’—and do not know that you are wretched, miserable, poor, blind, and naked”. (NKJV)

And look at what else the Lord said about them in Revelation 3:14-16:

 “And to the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write, these things says the Amen, the Faithful and True Witness, the Beginning of the creation of God: I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot.

I could wish you were cold or hot. So then, because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will vomit you out of My mouth”. (NKJV)

This is what our Lord stated in Matthew 19:23:” Then Jesus said to His disciples, “Assuredly, I say to you that it is hard for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven. 

And again I say to you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God.” (NKJV)

This truth never ceases to amaze me. And now, one additional Scripture that sets the truth on this subject is Proverbs 30:8-9.

We Should Donate To Those In Need

Speaking of monetary resources, a Christian post about money could never be complete without charity, but only the right kind of charity.

We should donate to the poor and the less previlage but sometimes the closest people to us and brothers and sisters in the church are in more need than the poor.

Notice what the Lord says in Matthew 25:35-36:“For I was hungry and you gave Me food;

I was thirsty and you gave Me drink; I was a stranger and you took Me in;  I was naked and you clothed Me; I was sick and you visited Me; I was in prison and you came to Me.” (NKJV)

It doesn’t have to be a monetary donation to be a donation. You can also donate your time and the little things you have with the closest people to you who are in need.

There are always people in need around us. They don’t always need to be poor to be in need.
